PSNI issue warning after drugs are stolen
Police are warning the public there could be tragic consequences if they take stolen drugs.
A PSNI spokeswoman said: "Following the theft of a quantity of prescription medicines, police and Department of Health officials are warning members of the public about the potential dangers of these drugs should they be taken without prescription.
"The drugs, which are oval in shape and are marked with 'KAP' on one side and 'AKE' on the reverse, may be in circulation as a result of the recent theft. The public are urged to be vigilant and to ensure that they do not put their health at risk by purchasing medication from an illicit source. The medicines involved are potent and are subject to abuse."
Detective Inspector Jill Duffie appealed to the public to report to the police on the non-emergency number 101 or alternatively on Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800555111 or to the Department's Medicines Regulatory Group any incidences where they have been offered any medicines from an unregulated source.
