Melville RCMP are looking for a man who stole a number of drugs from a pharmacy in the community last week.
A man entered the pharmacy on the 100 block of Second Avenue East just after 5 p.m. Tuesday while wearing a black balaclava.
After stealing a number of drugs, including 63 fentanyl patches, the suspect took off on foot in an unknown direction.
No one in the pharmacy was hurt during the incident.
There is a big concern over the fentanyl patches being taken, as they pose the same kind of risks to the public as fentanyl in other forms.
Authorities are asking anyone who comes into contact with these patches to call police immediately.
The man is described by police as being between five feet six inches and five feet nine inches tall, around 150 to 175 pounds with a noticeable gait.
He was wearing a black balaclava, a coat that’s orange on the bottom and grey on the top. He was also wearing red pajama pants and brown shoes.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to call 911, if it’s an emergency, or local police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
Melville is located around 150 kilometres northeast of Regina.
