Drugs Stolen From Ambulance
Bedfordshire Police are urging residents to be on the alert after a bag containing drugs was stolen from the back of an ambulance.
The green paramedic’s responder bag was stolen between 11.34pm on Tuesday (5 April) and 12.05am today (Wednesday 16 April) after a crew attended an incident in Garden Road, Dunstable.
Police want residents and parents to be aware in case the offender dumps the drugs, which are used to treat conditions such as heart attacks, diabetes, anaphylactic shock, asthma and overdoses.
East of England Ambulance service spokesman Gary Sanderson said: “The type of drugs stolen are potentially dangerous and could prove fatal if placed in the wrong hands.”
DCI Greg Horsford, from Dunstable Police Station, said: “Theft of any kind is deplorable, but theft from the back of an ambulance is particularly abhorrent.
“We would urge anyone who comes across this bag, or the drugs, to contact us immediately. We are also keen to speak to anyone who, with hindsight, recalls seeing anything suspicious in Garden Road or knows of someone trying to sell a quantity of drugs.”
Anyone with information can contact police, in confidence, on 01234 841212, text 07786 200011 or telephone Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
