Police Warning After Anaesthetic Stolen From Edinburgh Dental Practice
Police have issued a warning to the public after thieves broke into a dental practice in Edinburgh and stole cartridges of local anaesthetic.
Police believe that the break-in at MJP Midgley took place on Wednesday night or during the early hours of Thursday morning last week and are appealing for information. The practice is located in Bruntsfield Place.
Officers have confirmed that several cartridges are missing from the surgery and advised the public to inform police if they come across the medication. Constable Chris Stewart urged anyone who has information about the incident or anybody who saw anything suspicious in the area late on Wednesday evening or early on Thursday to contact the police.
Constable Stewart also warned the public about the potential dangers of consuming anaesthetic. The medication can cause skin irritation and affect the eyes and anyone who finds the cartridges is advised to call the police as quickly as possible.
Anyone who has any information about the theft is urged to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or contact Police Scotland on 101.Join this Discussion
