Public urged to not handle drugs if found

The medication went missing in an area bounded roughly by Victoria Park Avenue and St. Clair Avenue East in the southwest, and Markham Road and Eglinton Avenue East in the northeast, police say.

The medication could be harmful or fatal if ingested, especially if children are exposed to it, police say.
