MAPLE RIDGE (NEWS1130) – Ridge Meadows RCMP are warning drug users about a possible strong dose of methadone being stolen, and possibly being sold on the streets.

A Pharmacy on Lougheed Highway was broken into twice over the weekend, with the thief or thieves taking a quantity of methadone, both liquid and powder.

Staff Sergeant Alex Bodden says the liquid methadone, which is used to treat heroin addiction, can be very harmful, while the powder methadone can very easily be lethal. “We need to make this known to hard drug users to not use any methadone on the street. The odds of anyone who is not fully trained mixing up the powder methadone in a non-lethal dosage is not great, and the user will most likely harm him or herself.”

Anyone with information about these break-ins is asked to contact Ridge Meadows RCMP at (604) 463-6251.
