Columbia, SC (WLTX) - CVS pharmacy is letting its customers know of a security breach that could affect some of its customers here in Columbia.
The company says someone stole a pharmacy log book from their location at 4627 North Main Street. That book contained the personal information of approximately 900 patients.
The theft involves the information of patients who would have picked up prescriptions between July 16 and August 13 of this year. Columbia police have arrested the suspect, but the log book has not been recovered.
CVS says the stolen information contained patients' names, addresses, driver's licenses, prescriber information, and the CVS prescription identification number. No credit card, debit card, bank account, or medication information was taken.
At this time, there's no indication anyone's used this information improperly.
CVS/pharmacy has sent a notice to patients whose information was contained in the log book informing them about the theft, and is providing them with identity theft counseling and protection services.
CBS says affected customers may contact the CVS Privacy Office toll-free at 1-866-443-0933.
