Stolen Rx Flood Baltimore Streets


baltimorePrescription drugs were stolen from Rite Aid pharmacies during the Baltimore unrest, and sensitive personal information found on labels may now be on the streets. Store officials, however, say that other information, including credit cards and social security numbers, was not compromised.
