Pharmacy logbook stolen from Columbia CVS, customers warned

October 27, 2012 

— CVS pharmacy has warned customers of its store at 4627 North Main St. that their personal medical information may have been compromised.

In a release from corporate headquarters in Rhode Island, the pharmacy giant said a pharmacy log book containing personal and medical information of about 900 patients who filled a prescription between July 16 and August 13, 2012 was stolen from the Columbia store.

The log book contains customer drivers license numbers, addresses, prescriber information and CVS patient ID numbers.

CVS said it has no reason to believe the information has been used but, to be safe, anyone affected is provided one year of free credit monitoring and identity theft protection services.

The Columbia Police are investigating the theft.

Customers who may be affected are encouraged to call the CVS Privacy Office toll-free at 1-866.443.0933.
