Boxes of medical supplies stolen from Bo'ness garden

More than a dozen boxes of medical supplies, including syringes, have been stolen from a garden in Bo'ness, near Grangemouth.

Police said the supplies, worth hundreds of pounds, were taken from the garden of a house in the town's Miller Crescent at about 12:00 on Friday.

Twelve boxes of insulin pen needles were stolen, along with a box of syringes and one of dummy insulin pens.

Officers have appealed to anyone with information to contact them.

They also want to speak to a man and a woman pushing a pram, who were delivering charity bags to nearby homes.

The man is described as quite short and was wearing a skip hat and black jacket.

The woman was 5ft 1in, of slim build with brown hair above her shoulders. She was wearing a white top under a short sleeve T-shirt.

Central Scotland Police said the insulin pen needles had either green, pink or blue lids and had "BD Micro Fine" written on them.

A spokeswoman for the force added: "If members of the public come across any of these items, they should contact Central Scotland Police immediately and be aware that you should never take any medication unless prescribed to you."
