Pharmacy Pillagers Making Headlines in Philadelphia

(Via 6abc.com)  recently reported a string of robberies occurring at pharmacies in the Fern Rock and Kensington areas of Philadelphia. The initial robbery, which took place at Amigo Pharmacy early morning on August 20th, showed signs of forced entry to get into the store, but it seems like the unknown men have evolved. Footage from the most recent robbery at Broad and Grange Pharmacy on Monday, September 14th, shows that the thieves used crowbars and power saws to gain entry into the business, as well as to cut and disarm the alarm systems.

Once inside the pharmacy, the thieves targeted specific medications and even attempted to break into the safe. Footage showed sparks flying in every direction as they unsuccessfully tried to use their hand saws to cut the lock off of the safe. It seemed like at some point their lookout alerted them and they hastily left the scene in a newer model Jeep Cherokee.  The suspects made off with thousands of dollars worth of prescription drugs and authorities are on the lookout for them.

CCTV: Prime Commercial Security

For business owners, a top concern is always making sure that your commercial location is completely secure. There are plenty of precautions which can be taken to prevent loss and thefts, but there is only so much that locks are able to offer you. It would behoove business owners to have an eye in the sky which is constantly looking over what is going on at the business, especially since you are not always able to physically be at the location. Closed circuit television is something that offers just that. Closed circuit television, or CCTV for short, is an unbiased way to see what is occurring at your business. At their relatively low cost, closed circuit television is the top choice for business owners to get the most out of their commercial security.

Benefits of Closed Circuit Television

Choosing CCTV to make your business secure is one of the best steps that you can take in making sure your location is completely secure. By recording everything that is occurring within your store or office, you can catch any thieves directly in the act, with accompanying visual evidence. In addition to catching thieves after the fact, the presence of CCTV cameras can deter thieves from ever striking in the first place.

This is helpful for not only burglars and thieves who are coming from outside of your business, but can also help to prevent internal loss. Whether it is theft from an employee or the misuse of company equipment, having CCTV installed can help you to identify and stop the behavior from happening. Reports and stories from employees could be biased, but a closed circuit television camera offers the most unbiased view of the situation possible and allows for the business owner to handle issues accordingly.
