On Thursday, Oct. 17, at about 11:25 a.m., police were dispatched to a rehabilitation program on Old Cambridge Road for a report of larceny.
The resident met officers upon their arrival and said that someone had stolen medication from him.
Police learned that while the man was sleeping in the television lounge area, he was awoken by two other residents who said they were looking for a flashlight.
The reporting party said that while he had difficulty waking after taken sleeping medication, he felt as though he were being “patted down,” according to the report.
When the resident woke up on Thursday morning, he found that his bottle of prescribed Suboxine that had been in his sweatshirt pocket was gone.
Later in the morning, the man said another resident came to him with six tablets of Suboxine, saying he had found them in the cushions of the couch where he had been sleeping. The reporting party said that the bottle in his pocket originally contained 18 pills.
There were no witnesses or evidence that was located, and the man had already notified the resident manager of the program. Officers informed the man that a report would be forwarded documenting the incident.
