Drugs taken in C&C Discount burglary

Around 12:29 a.m. Thursday Richmond Police offi cers responded to an automated alarm at C&C Discount Drug, 401 Wollard Blvd., to find the front window shattered.
Thanks to some quick work by pharmacist Susan Duffett’s husband Royce, the windows are now covered with plywood, said owner Everett Thompson. He said the plywood may not be beautiful but it is functional. Thompson added that he feels lucky that the damage wasn’t worse. “I’ll take a burglary over a robbery any day,” Thompson said. Both Thompson and Interim Police Chief Chad Burnine confi rmed that some medications had been taken, but they were not able to say what kind or how much. “We don’t want to reveal more than we think we know,” Thompson said, noting it is important to let the police do their job. Burnine said Thursday that detectives were following some leads.
