PO­LICE have warned that med­i­ca­tion stolen from a Bel­don home re­cently could be lifethreat­en­ing if it is abused. Of­fi­cers are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the theft of a heart and lung mon­i­tor and med­i­ca­tion in tablet form known as Fri­sium from a Bel­don home on Au­gust 25. The items were in­side a green Bun­nings can­vas bag that was stolen be­tween 3pm and 7pm. Fri­sium is a drug used to treat epilepsy. North West Metropoli­tan con­trol cen­tre of­fi­cer Sharon Pow­ell said it was un­likely the thief knew what was in­side the bag. “The items will not be of use to any­one other than the peo­ple it is used to help,” she said. “We don’t want to see the med­i­ca­tion be­ing left where chil­dren may find it. I urge any­one who has pos­ses­sion of the tablets to call po­lice.” Po­lice have re­leased a pic­ture of the stolen heart and lung mon­i­tor. It car­ries Health­lyne brand­ing. If you have seen the de­vice, call Hil­larys po­lice on 9403 1000.
