West Seattle Crime Watch: Pharmacy held up after it shut down

Just found out (thanks to Anne for the tip) that someone working inside Westside Pharmacy, which was doing inventory after closing its pharmacy operations last night to move to the new QFC, was held up this afternoon. Southwest Precinct Lt. Steve Paulsen says the robber went in around 2 pm, showed a silver revolver, demanded drugs, was given a bag of what actually were various “returned” drugs since the pharmacy had no stock left after the move, and took off. No injuries. Only description – white male robber, black male driver in a gray getaway car. 8:32 PM UPDATE: SPDBlotter has published an item about this, with a few more details.

    When I read on the blog that they were moving all those drugs yesterday, I actually wondered whether they had to hire armed security gaurds for the move.

    I guess that woulda a good idea.

    And I’m only slightly distrubed to find out that I think like a criminal.

    Glad that everyone at Westside Pharmacy is okay. What a dramatic closing for the place!

    JanS – I like the way you think, though I’d be more amused by Depo Provera.

    I was hoping they got a bag of laxatives!

Sorry, comment time is over.
