Police are combing the Vaughan area to find four suspects who allegedly robbed a drug distribution company of $5,000 worth of epinephrine, an ingredient commonly found in steroids and street drugs.
According to police, just after 9 a.m. Friday four people entered the front door of Titan Distribution on Spinnaker Way just behind a company employee reporting for work.
One of the suspects had a handgun and forced the employee into a washroom while the robbery took place. The victim wasn't hurt.
Police say the drug is dangerous and could be used to concoct illicit drugs like methamphetamine. The container labels explicitly say 'Epinephrine,' so police hope someone will identify the large cylinder containers and report the sighting.
