Narcotics resembling ibuprofen seized by RCMP

White pills resembling over-the-counter medications but containing narcotics could be circulating in the territory, warn Yukon RCMP.

The unmarked pills were found in a bottle of medication and tested positive for trace amounts of cocaine, RCMP Staff Sgt. Jane Boissonneault said. 

The pills have now been sent for a full toxicology analysis. 

Police said the pills look similar over-the-counter drugs like ibuprofen and Tylenol, but without a name or dosage information.

RCMP are warning Yukon residents not to take medication unless it has been specifically prescribed by a doctor.

They're asking people to take any unmarked or suspicious pills to the local pharmacy.

Police did not say where the pills were found, or when the toxicology results will be back.
