A quantity of prescription diamorphine has been stolen during a robbery at a property in Seaforde, County Down.
The householder was threatened by two men at the property on Newcastle Road at about 1500 GMT on Christmas Day.
They demanded he hand over a number of vials of diamorphine and then fled the scene.
Police said the man was unhurt but "distressed" by the incident. They have warned that diamorphine should not be taken without medical advice.
