More than 300 pills of painkillers were stolen from a military veteran’s vehicle Sunday while he was attending the area’s inaugural Border Bowl football game, according to an incident report from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.
Among the medications stolen were 150 pills of hydrocodone and 80 pills each of Valium and Percocet.
The veteran told the sheriff’s office that the prescriptions were stolen between noon and 5 p.m. Sunday when someone entered his Ford Expedition. The medications were stored inside a toolbox that was also taken.
The man reported the theft at 9:45 a.m. Monday after the Charlie Norwood Veterans Affairs Medical Center told him to file a report, according to police records.
