Police are investigating a report from Cristy Animal Hospital about a woman looking to illegally acquire laughing gas, or isoflutrna.
The local vet got a call Thursday evening from a woman claiming to work for a veternarian in Oxford, according to the report. She said they had run out and had numerous surgeries the next morning. She asked that the Cristy staff leave the drug outside for her to pick up.
It later was discovered that a technician from the Oxford vet's office had been fired two weeks earlier for trying to steal the drug.
