STOLEN HORSE MEDICINE FOR DRUGS MARKET?
Gardai fear that horse medicine stolen from a Kildorrery stud last week could possibly be cut down and mixed with illegal recreational drugs sold over Christmas.
The theft of the substantial amount of horse painkillers and sedatives occurred on Tuesday evening, December 9 from Carrigdowne Stud, Rockmills, Kildorrery from which a Jack Russell pet dog was also stolen.
The premises have been forensically examined and gardai are presently investigating the robbery. Speaking to The Avondhu, Garda Andrew Geary asked that the public exercise ‘extreme caution’ following the theft and said that there is ‘always a fear’ that the medicines could be abused for recreational purposes.
Anyone offered horse medication from an unusual source are urged to contact Fermoy gardai. Fermoy gardai believe the theft could be related to an attempted break-in the following afternoon, Wednesday, December 10 in Ballyshonack, Kildorrery where a rear door was jimmied. Nothing was taken in the attempted break-in, but the scene was forensically examined.
Fermoy gardai appeal for anyone with information on either incident to call 025-82100.
