Purdue donates big bucks to find pharmacy robbers

Purdue Pharma, the manufacturer of OxyContin, has fronted $2,500 to help solve a pharmacy robbery in Phoenix, Ariz., under its program RxPATROL, according to this article from Phoenix News Times. Three bandits made off with 62,000 Oxy pills, worth $175,000 on the street, in late January. Such cases are a reminder that while drug store robberies are an increasing epidemic, they’re also an opportunity for good PR.
