The Guelph Police remind you to always protect your drink when you are at a party, bar or any kind of location where you are consuming beverages, never leave your drink unattended. Even if you stand next to it but are turning around to speak to someone, that gives enough time for someone to spike your drink. Pick up your drink and hold it, it’s harder for someone to get to it that way.
