NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) – Police in Nicholasville are searching for two people who stole a container of drugs from a delivery truck.

According to the Nicholasville Police Department, the driver was dropping off a drug delivery at St. Joseph Jessamine hospital Wednesday morning and when he came back out, he spotted two men taking a container from the truck.

Police say he yelled at them to stop but they got into a gray Nissan with tape over the license plate and left.

A Nicholasville police officer spotted the car a short time later but decided it was too dangerous to chase the car.

Police say they, and the driver of the truck, do not know what drugs were taken since the containers are sealed and unlabeled, which is a common safety practice.

They say it is likely the suspects planned the robbery since drug deliveries are made almost daily to hospitals and clinics and the suspects took the time to put tape over the license plate of the getaway car.
