Cancer medication stolen with car

Saturday June 20, 2015 Written by Published in Crime

A family in Nikao have been rattled by the return of their stolen vehicle, without the important cancer medication it held.

The family had been in utter distress after the vehicle was reportedly stolen across from Viana’s Bar late last Sunday night.

Will Topstory says the vehicle’s glove box held medication containing morphine, which is specially flown in from Australia every month to treat his mother’s cancer.

The vehicle was found yesterday by a member of the public who claimed she noticed the vehicle across her yard after seeing a facebook post on Monday.

But when Topstory’s mother went to claim the vehicle, she found that the medication was still missing.

The police are investigating the person who found the vehicle, believing her to be the one responsible as she also had a key for the car inside her house. 

Will Topstory says this has really affected his mum because she mainly has her medication in the car which she uses to deliver cakes and pick up tenants for their holiday houses.

Luckily for them, a new batch of the medication was set to arrive yesterday although the family remain concerned about the whole ordeal.

“It’s funny because as soon as I put up a cash reward I said to my partner, watch, someone will find it,” Topstory says.

He says sure enough, someone wrote in two minutes later saying it was in their yard.

Police will continue the investigation to find out who stole the vehicle and the medication.
