The National Ambulance Service (NAS) has thanked the public for their help in locating a small number of controlled drugs that went missing from an ambulance in Cork city on Tuesday.

A pouch containing the drugs was reported missing yesterday evening by NAS crew members while they were stationed outside the Mercy Hospital on Grenville Place yesterday.

A statement released by the NAS appealed to the public for their help in finding the pouch but warned anyone who came across the bag not to touch the contents.

The statement said: “The National Ambulance Service (NAS) wish to advise the public that a small quantity of controlled drugs has gone missing."

“A pouch containing the drugs which is red in colour with a grey trim and has the National Ambulance Service crest on it was noticed missing by a NAS crew while on duty in the Grenville place area of Cork City this evening.

“The pouch is hand size and has CD Rx A42 printed on the front.”
