Just heard reported on TV that "another" Rite Aid was robbed.. but they caught the guy within 10 mintues. This time it was the store in Naples. What is it that makes these places so easy and attractive for those looking for drugs? Seems like we never see Walgreens robbed. I noticed there is a security van and a guard right inside the door now, for the past 2 days at the Rite Aid I "used to use", on Union and 14th in Bangor.

Maybe they are paid by Walgreens to rob the Rite Aids. Naaah.

One of these stores (not sure if it was a Rite Aid), fired an employee for successfully resisting a robbery. Really, if you think about it, all these stores want is to get the robbers out of the store. The pills they are stealing are dirt cheap and it isn't the store's problem that Maine has tons of drug addicts. Just feed the animals and they'll go away... until they get hungry again.

I don't go to Rite Aid often, but when I do it seems like there are hardly ever any people in them, shoppers or employees. Maybe this makes them a more attractive target?

I think they should arm and train pharmacists to use tranquilizer dart guns.

That way, the perp will do a faceplant at the door and there will be no necessity to call out half of Maine's police force to arrest him or her.

Drug addicts don't have any brain cells left. The only thing on their minds is their next fix, or if they make their living selling pills on the black market, their next paycheck.

I think the point is proven when it's evident that these people who rob Rite Aids seem to always get caught. Still, they continue to think that they can get away with it.

Rite Aids aren't the only ones who have been robbed, but they do seem to be taking the lion's share don't they?
