Police are appealing for information after around ten syringes of a dangerous drug were stolen from a Croydon hospital.
Officers believe a man and a boy took ten to 15 syringes of Revaxis, an anti-tenatus drug, from Purley and District War Memorial Hospital on Brighton Road, at around 5pm on October 7.
A police spokesperson warned the drug can be harmful and cause an anaphylaxis allergic reaction if administered incorrectly, which results in extreme breathing difficulties.
Officers described the man as being white and 20 to 30 years old. He was wearing a red top, a cream coloured jacket, and grey jogging trousers with white trainers.
The boy that accompanied the man was white, aged 10 to 14 years old, and was wearing a grey t-shirt with red shorts, white socks and black trainers.
“Detectives are keen to trace the pair and ensure the safe return of the drugs” a police spokesperson added.
Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101 quoting reference CRIS 3829296/15 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
