AN ALERT HAS been issued after a potentially lethal chemical was stolen from a veterinary practice in Dublin.

The chemical Euthatal was taken from the vets on Dublin Street in Balbriggan last week. Gardaí say that two bottles, each containing 150ml were taken in the robbery.

The blue liquid is used to destroy animals and can be fatal to humans if consumed or ingested.

“If any information comes to light regarding the circulation of this substance the primary concern of An Garda Siochana is that it is safely seized and destroyed,” said Detective Sergeant Brian Roberts.

Anyone with information on the stolen vials can contact Balbriggan Garda Station at 01 8412202 or the Garda confidential line at 1800 666111.
