Another pharmacy in Weston was robbed this week. The Main Drug Mart at 2160 Weston Rd, was robbed at about 6:30 pm on February 7. The pharmacy is on the west side of the intersection of Weston Rd and Church.
A man wearing a disguise threatened an employee with a handgun. He demanded and got cash and prescription drugs before fleeing. Nobody was hurt in the robbery.
Last week, the River Hill Pharmacy at 2086 Lawrence Ave (near Weston Rd) was robbed. The thief also produced a handgun and demanded cash and drugs before fleeing. The cases may be related, but the acts were committed by different people. In the first case the robber was white; in the second he was black.
Last year, Weston Drug Mart, across the street from Main Drug Mart was robbed similarly.
