That much Advil could not have been out in the store on the shelves. Either this was an inside job - removing the Advil stock from the stockroom - or robbers invaded the stockroom and took the goods (or robbers had inside help). If the Advil stolen was the type that contains pseudoephedrine, then It is possible that the pills were stolen for a meth lab.
