Police warn the public to be vigilant over discarded medication packs

Police in Stourport have issued a warning to members of the public concerning a quantity of prescription medication packs which have been found placed in certain locations on shelving inside the Co-op Midcounties store in Lombard Street on several occasions by unknown persons over the last few weeks.

Detective Inspector Justin Taylor said: "The pills are in blister packs and are blood thinning medication. If the medication were to be consumed by a child it is likely they would become very unwell.

"We have been working with the store to take the appropriate measures and our local SNT (Safer Neighbourhood Team) have been visiting other stores and talking with the local community to warn them to be vigilant.

"Anyone finding medication blister packs or any pills are asked to alert a staff member or pharmacist or pass the item to a health centre or police station immediately where they can safely be destroyed. We would also like to hear from anyone who has any information about the medication being found ber or in the Co-op Midcounties in Stourport to please get in touch with us on 101 and quote incident number 459S of the 20 July 2019"

 

Issued by Alex Gale, Communications Officer at 5.45pm on Tuesday 23 July 2019
