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.

Huh?

Who goes around with that many pills in their vehicle? 150 Hydrocodone?
If they were just filled or something, they should have been taken to a safer vicinity.
Some of these reports just sound too fishy to me...

Who issues that many

Who issues that many hydrocodone pills at one time? I thought there were limits/controls, no?

THE GAME

Does he even remember the game? That is alot of Mind Altering Drugs, apparently he went to the VA to get some more. In the 70's we would have said "He took a trip and never left the stadium."

Stolen pills

Almost like a 'rolling pharmacy' and very very foolish! Must have been at least 3 months' worth with so many pills involved.
