21 year old arrested following Wigton burglary

Police are investigating a burglary and theft at the CO-OP pharmacy, King Street, Wigton, which took place at around 2:30 am on 1 March 2012. A 21 year old Wigton man was arrested on suspicion of burglary and has been bailed until 24 April 2012 pending further enquiries.

During the burglary a large quantity of both prescription and controlled drugs were stolen. Approximately 1/4 of these drugs have been recovered. However there are still a number which are missing and police are warning anyone against using any drugs which have not been prescribed to them.

"It is important that people realise the dangers in taking both prescribed and controlled drugs that a doctor has not personally prescribed for them. We are wanting to recover all of the items stolen and would ask members of the public to get in touch.
