ACT Policing is issuing a warning to the public that medication stolen from a Lyneham veterinary hospital is potentially fatal to humans.
Around 2.30am this morning (Thursday, 1 September) police attended the Lyneham Veterinary Hospital in response to a burglary at the premises.
CCTV footage shows two offenders entering the main foyer and going to the storeroom which contained the medication.
An audit of the drug room by staff has revealed the offenders took some Trilostane which is used to treat dogs for hormonal conditions. If the drug is consumed by a person it may cause vomiting and nausea, while a large dose has the potential to be fatal.
Police would urge anyone who may have witnessed suspicious activity around 2.30am this morning (Thursday, 1 September) to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information to Crime Stoppers can be provided anonymously.
