State police at Schuylkill Haven said a very small amount of several narcotic-based medicine items were removed during a shift change at the Rest Haven home in North Manheim Township. The thefts were discovered during a routine inventory done during the shift change.

Troopers said they are conducting interviews.

Removed was a Craftsman air gun and a 12-piece wrench set. The entry occurred sometime between 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 26, and 6:30 a.m. Saturday.
