A drug-filled medical bag left behind by paramedics attending to an emergency has gone missing.

Emergency Medical Service crews forgot the red duffle bag after making a stop in the McIntyre Subdivision last Monday.

The bag was gone when they returned to retrieve it, said RCMP spokesperson Mark Groves.

The RCMP have consensually been allowed to check people’s houses in the neighborhood as tips rolled in, said Groves.

The 60-cm long bag is filled with narcotics that could harm anyone not requiring treatment, he said. (James Munson)
