Pharmacy Breach At Little Rock, AR Kmart

08:00 EDT Monday, April 22, 2013

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kmart Store located in 10901 Rodney Parham, Little Rock, AR was the subject of a crime on March 17th, 2013. 

Specifically, an armed individual entered the store at closing and demanded all money and other valuables stored in the locked safe.  Among the valuables was certain electronic media that backed up the Pharmacy's computer system and which contained confidential information related to prior customer prescriptions: full name, address, date of birth, prescription number, prescriber, insurance cardholder ID and drug name.  Certain prescriptions also contained the customer's social security number.  Although the Pharmacy promptly reported the theft to local law enforcement, none of the valuables have been recovered as of this date.  On April 19, 2013, the Pharmacy submitted written notification to all affected customers by U.S. Mail.  

Kmart is committed to protecting the privacy of our customers and we take this incident very seriously.  Any customers seeking additional information regarding the incident may call 1-866-871-4680 for further information.
