Cancer Patient Victimized By Thieves

A man with terminal cancer, who needs his medications daily, has been victimized by thieves. The man told the sheriff's office this week that a bottle of liquid morphine which he uses to deal with the pain of his cancer had been filled last Friday. It went missing on Tuesday, soon after someone came to visit the man at his home on Edgefield Court. Police are following up on leads in the case. They say prescription pain killers are becoming one of the most abused drugs in the area.
