Break-in at Hope pharmacy

Owner says a safe with an undisclosed amount of controlled drugs was taken

Hope RCMP is looking for the public’s help in identifying those responsible for a break-in at Toy’s Pharmacy over the Canada Day weekend.

The break-in occurred sometime between 6:30 p.m. on June 28 and 1:20 p.m. on July 1. Owner Galen Toy said a safe with an undisclosed amount of controlled drugs was taken. Entry was made through the front doors, causing damage to both locks.

“This is unusual for us,” said Staff Sgt. Suki Manj. “It’s obvious that this was not a regular break-and-enter. It was done with a purpose.”

If you witnessed anything suspicious near the pharmacy over the weekend or have any information regarding this incident, contact Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750 or Crime Stoppers Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
