500 prescription drugs stolen from home

More than 500 prescribed tablets have been stolen from a home in Southampton.

On Monday July, 1, a burglar opened a locked window of a flat in Burgess Road between 12.30 and 6.40pm.

When the homeowner, a 54-year-old man, returned he found his bedroom window open and the tablets missing.

The medication includes Chlozapin, Metformin, Oxybutynin, Omeprazole, Ramipril, Amlodipine, Januvia and Senna.

Detective Constable Laura McIntosh is appealing for information around the time of theft and warns anyone who finds the tablets to alert police.

She said: "This medication is dangerous for anyone who has not been prescribed it. If found, it should be handed in immediately to police. We also would like to hear about anyone who has acquired lots of tablets in the last few days"
