Police Hunt Drugs Theives

Blue Police LampPolice at Eastleigh are warning the public to be wary, if they are offered prescription drugs.

The warning comes after £500 worth of medication was reported stolen from a flat in Newtown Road, Eastleigh, on Tuesday, April 16.

The occupier of the flat, a 44-year-old man, told police he left his premises for an hour at 10.30am. When he returned, he found the rear door from George Street wide open. He said it was locked when he left.

The stolen drugs include Dihydrocodiene 30mgs, Diazepam 5mgs, Temazapam 20mgs, Lantus slow release insulin and Risperidone 2mgs.

Also missing are a box of 100 Novofine needles and four Novo rapid Insulin pen refills.

Police want to hear from anyone who saw suspicious people in George Street at the time of the offence. They also are warning people not to buy or use medication they find or are offered.

Anyone who finds tablets or needles is asked to contact police at Eastleigh on 101, as is anyone with information about the reported theft.
