Burglars at vet nab tranquillisers

Tranquillisers and scheduled drugs were stolen during a burglary at a Port Elizabeth veterinary hospital at the weekend.
A safe containing the drugs was ripped out of the wall and taken.
Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Alwin Labans said the burglary at the Kragga Kamma Veterinary Hospital had taken place on Sunday morning.
“The alarm triggered at 5.15am and the vet was alerted,” he said.
“When the armed response arrived, they found the front [perimeter] gate removed off the railing and the building’s front door forced open. “The place was ransacked.” Labans said an amount of money had also been taken.
The police anti-poaching unit had also been alerted in case the drugs were to be used by poachers.
