Two women face charges of stealing drugs from the Watson Lake Hospital Thursday evening.
Police recovered three vials of drugs, but five additional vials have yet to be found, despite what police describe as an extensive search of the area and a residence.
The vials are made of clear glass or plastic, are plugged with rubber stoppers, and contain liquids.
RCMP have alerted nearby schools. They ask anyone who finds the vials to report it to police.
“It’s not something to experiment with,” said Sgt. Paul Thalhofer. “It could kill you.”
