Among the litter at the homeless encampment at East 72nd Street and Portland Avenue were dozens of prescription-medicine bottles from the Kmart pharmacy. I just talked to Dennis Stewart, the general manager of the store.

“Quite frankly, we take all our precautions seriously and according to the law,” he said. “We’re aware of what happened, and there is an investigation into it.”

He said he can’t disclose the scope of the investigation or a timeframe of its completion. He did say the store has been in contact with the police, but he didn’t have much else to say.

Portland and 72nd
