Between 6.30pm on Thursday 9 June and 8am on Friday 10 June 2016 offenders gained access to St Mary’s Veterinary Clinic in Ringwood Road.

Six packets of around 600 Tramadol capsules – a drug mainly used for dogs as pain relief for arthritis – were stolen. A quantity of Diazepam and other drugs was also taken together with a small quantity of cash.

“A quantity of drugs was stolen during the burglary and I would urge anyone who finds these items or is offered them, not to take them but call Dorset Police immediately.”
