ANIMAL medications were stolen during a burglary at a Noranda veterinary practice.

Some of the items stolen could have potentially fatal effects if used or ingested by humans.

It is believed the robbery at the Benara Road clinic happened sometime between 2pm on Saturday and 8am on Monday.

The offenders have forced their way into the clinic, rummaging through various rooms and stealing cash and veterinary drugs from a safe before leaving the area.

Police believe whoever stole the medications “may not fully appreciate the dangers associated with veterinary drugs”.

They have advised anyone that comes into contact with unknown substances or non-prescribed medications not to take or administer them and to call Crime Stoppers immediately on 1800 333 000 or make a report online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au.
