Plea after prescription drugs stolen in Glasgow

Police are warning that prescription drugs, which were inside a car stolen in Glasgow, could be fatal if taken under the wrong circumstances.

The drugs were stored in a bag and kept inside a silver Mitsubishi Lancer which was stolen from outside a flat in Ferry Road, Yorkhill, on Tuesday night.

Some of the drugs are used to treat heart conditions and vomiting, and have the potential to "cause serious harm".

Police have appealed for help in finding the stolen car and the drugs.

'Potent' drugs

Con David Johnston, of Strathclyde Police, said the car, which has a registration number beginning SB05, has not been recovered.

"I would ask that anyone who knows of its whereabouts or who has seen a car matching the one stolen to contact police.

"With regard to the contents of the bag, some of the drugs, used to treat heart conditions and vomiting, are potent, and if taken without being properly prescribed could prove to be fatal or cause serious harm.

"It's important that anyone who comes across these drugs, or who may be offered them, contacts police."
