The drugs are still missing, but a 28-year-old woman is facing charges in connection with the theft of fentanyl pills from a Regina pharmacy.
Regina police describe the crime as an “internal theft” at the pharmacy. A forged medical prescription was also passed off as genuine in order to get the fentanyl.
Lesly Anne Barabonoff was arrested on Wednesday and faces charges of forgery, fraud and theft under $5,000.
The drug enforcement street team put out a public statement on Tuesday, warning the public to watch out for more fentanyl pills available on the streets.
Fentanyl is a strong prescription painkiller, but it can be fatal when taken without direction from a doctor.
