Merseyside police are urging members of the public and veterinary practices to exercise caution following the theft of prescription veterinary medicines from a commercial vehicle in Prescot.
 
Merseyside policeAccording to reports, the missing medication includes around ten 100ml bottles of Micotil – a POM-V medicine that could prove fatal if taken by humans.
 
The drug, which was packaged in cardboard with Spanish labelling, was stolen from a lorry parked overnight (October 7-8) on an industrial park at Caddick Road, Prescot, prior to making a delivery to a company in Speke.
 
PC Dufton-Kelly of Huyton Police Station‘s crime management unit said: “We believe this was simply an opportunist theft, which has left the offenders with a rather unusual product on their hands, with little or no opportunity for gain.
 
“We would like to alert the veterinary industry, particularly in the Merseyside area, in case the goods are handed in or offered for sale. The drugs could present a danger to the public if they fall into the wrong hands.”
 
Anyone who finds the drugs is asked to contact their nearest police station via 0151 709 6010. Anyone with information about the theft can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. All information provided will be treated in strict confidence.
