Cliffside Crime – Scarborough

In September 2011 a neighbourhood drug store was broken into and a large amount of potentially fatal medication was stolen. From Inside Toronto:
Police have issued a public safety alert after a quantity of medication was taken during a break-in at a Scarborough drug store.Police said 500 tablets of Tylenol 3 and 500 tables of Tylenol 2 were stolen from Cliffside Pharmacy at 2340 Kingston Rd. between 8 and 9:30 p.m. on Sept. 21.“The medication could be harmful/fatal if ingested, especially to children,” police said in a news release.Demerol, Hydromorph and Vyvanse were also stolen.
Security measures such as alarm systems, surveillance cameras, window bars and gates can greatly improve safety and security in commercial establishments as well as homes and offices. It is incorrect to feel that your company is “too small” for a functioning security system. Alarm systems and surveillance cameras more than pay for themselves as they reduce theft and property damage just by being installed. You can also save on your insurance rates by having a security system and/or surveillance cameras in your business.For more information, please contact SafeTech Alarm Systems today.Back to Cliffside Report
