£30K worth of Paracetamol stolen from lorry in Barnsley

Barnsley Police are appealing for information after a lorry containing around £30,000 worth of Galpharm paracetamol was broken into in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

It was reported that the lorry, which was parked on Elmhurst Park in Dodworth, Barnsley, was broken into by thieves between 12am and 5.30am, while the driver was asleep.  

Detective Inspector Tom Woodward said: “We are asking the public to be vigilant and aware of this incident. If you are suspicious of anybody selling these paracetamols in large quantities, please let us know immediately and do not buy them.

“The unique batch numbers, PYA0050A and PYA0051A, are written on the boxes. The remainder of these batches are set to be destroyed so that the only ones in circulation now will be the stolen ones.”

“The tablets are in big boxes which contain more than you could buy over the counter. If you are offered any for sale please let us know.”

Detectives are appealing for anybody with information to contact them.

Anybody with information about the incident should call the police on 101 quoting incident number 13.
