A bag of dangerous medication has been stolen during a break-in at a Long Eaton home.

Police are appealing for people to be on the lookout for the drugs, which should only be taken unless prescribed by a doctor.

Burglars also took a laptop and two mobile phonesfrom the home on Wilsthorpe Road.

In the bag of medicines were blister packs of 100mg zoramorph tablets, three 100ml bottles of morphine syrup, and diazepam, amitryptiline and tolterodine tablets.

A Derbyshire police spokesman said: “Although the drugs were prescribed by doctors, they could be very dangerous in the wrong hands.

“The dosage and timing of the medication is very specific and could have serious consequences for anyone who takes them.

“We are appealing for anyone who finds any of the medication to call police on 101 or hand it in at a police station.”

The burglary took place between 9am on Saturday May 24 and 9am on Tuesday May 27.

Witnesses or anyone with information on the offence should call Derbyshire police on 101, quoting crime reference 22249/14.
