Clinic break-in prompts warning from Vancouver Police

Vancouver Police have a warning for drug users after a clinic on Abbott Street was broken-into early Sunday morning.

They say it was reported that nine syringes containing various amounts of heroine and morphine were taken from the Crosstown Clinic.

The drugs were being used in a research program designed to wean users off drugs.

Police say there could be enough heroine or morphine in those syringes to cause serious injury or death to someone not used to the dosage.

They’re advising that no one take or use the pre-filled syringes.

The syringes don’t have the usual orange caps, and may have a bar code sticker on them.

They are not in packages.

If you have any information, call your local police, or Crime Stoppers.
