Police say the thieves may have thought they were stealing medication.

Cambridge police have issued a warning after thieves stole life-threatening medication from a medical vehicle in Cambridge.

The drugs could be fatal if consumed.

The incident happened between 5pm Wednesday (March 21) and 10am yesterday (March 22), when thieves entered the veterinary vehicle and stole seven bottles of euthanasia medication.

A police spokesperson said: “It is possible the thieves may have thought they were stealing medication such as ketamine but this is not the case.

“The medication they have taken is extremely dangerous if taken and would pose a threat to life to any individual who were to consume it.”
