DRUGS that can be used as a replacement for heroin withdrawal have been lost in Rugby.

The opiate substitute prescription drug has been described as ‘extremely dangerous’ to both adults and children if they are taken without medical guidance.

They were collected from Knights Pharmacy in Sheep Street on Tuesday this week and were lost somewhere between Sheep Street, Rokeby Street, and Clifton Road near to the Clifton Inn sometime before 6pm.

The drugs were in a white box with purple writing on it. Within the white box were 14 x 8 milligram Subutex tablets and 16 x 7.5 milligram Zopiclone tablets. Both tablets were contained within blister packs with the Zoplicone in a green blister pack.

Anyone who finds some or all of the drugs are asked to hand them in to the police station, a pharmacist or to a health centre immediately where they can safely be destroyed.
