Ontario Provincial Police are investigating after a local pharmacy was robbed.
It happened around 4:30pm Friday at the IDA Pharmacy in the 11000 block of Tecumseh Rd E in Tecumseh. OPP say a single male suspect, wearing a surgical mask, entered the drugstore brandishing a weapon and demanded narcotics.
