Break and Enter at EHS Paramedic Station - September 25, 2013 (1 p.m.) Halifax Regional Police (HRP) and Emergency Health Services (EHS) are warning the public about potentially lethal drugs stolen from an EHS station last night in Spryfield. At 8:50 p.m., two EHS paramedics were inside the EHS station located at 5 Hartlen Avenue when an unknown suspect(s) entered the station and stole an ambulance equipment bag. The suspect(s) left on foot and were not located. The bag is red in colour and bears clear EHS markings. The bag contained drugs are used to treat serious heart conditions and breathing problems amongst other things. The medical consequences of ingesting or injecting these drugs could include internal bleeding, dangerous increases in blood pressure or an irregular heartbeat – all of which could be fatal. None of the stolen drugs were narcotics.
The stolen drugs are extremely dangerous if used by people who are not trained healthcare professionals and we ask anyone who finds the bag to immediately call police so we can secure them safely. If the drugs are ingested or injected, call 911 immediately.
