For the third time in recent weeks, a southwest Calgary Co-Op has fallen victim to food tampering, according to police.

Police said employees at the Oakridge Co-Op on Southland Drive and 24 St SW found more pins in cheese and flat breads during early morning inspections before the store opened, prompting further investigation by police.

Police on the scene have indicated that officers have been dedicated to this case since the tampering began with a case in January, and then another incident in February of this year.


The store remains open, and police and a Co-Op spokeperson are remaining fairly tight-lipped about measures being taken to capture the suspect or suspects in this case, to avoid compromising the investigation.

The store spokesperson did say that extra security have been added to oversee the store, and that customers have showed exceptional support as they deal with the investigation.
