Police are appealing for witnesses and issuing a warning to the public after animal medication was stolen in St Andrews.

Sometime overnight between Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th November a vehicle parked in Market Street was entered and 10 sachets of Bute painkillers were stolen along with a bottle of horse penicillin and some syringes.

Bute is a painkiller and anti-inflamatory similar to ibuprofen and consuming this in excess can have a significant impact on your health.

Anyone who comes into possession of this medication should not consume it.

The drugs are meant for animal, not human use, and should be handed into a local police station if members of the public come across them.
