VANCOUVER - Vancouver police say a courier truck carrying a large quantity of non-narcotic, HIV medication has been stolen.
They're looking for a brown 1998 Toyota Sienna with "Corporate Couriers" logos and a BC license plate 946LRP.
Police say the vehicle was in the east lane of the 400 block of Main Street when it was stolen early Tuesday afternoon.
The unidentified medication was in pill, capsule and liquid form and was destined for a pharmacy on the city's east side.
Police are warning recreational drug users that while the medication is not a narcotic, it can cause sickness if consumed.
