Cleveland police investigating theft of seizure drug from EMS headquarters

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Police are investigating the theft of a small amount of seizure medication from Cleveland EMS headquarters.

No arrests have been made in the case.

EMS Capt. Reginald Anderson reported Tuesday that he performed a routine inventory on drugs that captain’s carry around with them every day.

Anderson said supervisors conduct the inventory checks on the drugs after every shift. When he got his bag around 9 a.m. from the night-shift captain, he noticed a small bottle of Lorazepam was empty.

He checked the inventory list that the previous captain reported at the end of his shift that said the dosage of Lorazepam was still in the bag, police reports say.

Anderson reported the missing drugs to Deputy EMS Commission Dave Miller, who called police.
