Man Thought He Stole Opioids, But They Were Laxatives


A South Florida man stole what he thought were some opioids but the pills turned out to be laxatives.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says 56-year old Peter Hans Emery Junior was caught on camera, opening the victim's lock box and taking a pill bottle, dumping several pills into his hand and walking away.

While the bottle was labled "Hydrocodone Acetaminophen," it actually contained Walmart brand laxatives.
