SHAWVILLE PHARMACY ROBBERY – On August 25 around 10 pm, a group of people broke into Uniprix Santé Ahmad Hassan pharmacien INC. According to Marc Tessier, Surete du Quebec Media Spokesperson, the group entered the store from the back of the building and left with some cash. Since the store doesn’t keep large amounts of cash on hand, owner Ahmad Hassan said he did not lose a large amount. No description of the suspects is available at this time and an investigation is ongoing.                                                  (AB)
