A rash of veterinary office burglaries in Howard County may be linked to the growing popularity of street use of ketamine, a drug commonly used to anesthetize animals. Howard County police are investigating five ketamine thefts from Columbia Animal Hospital on Hickory Ridge Road since March. "The one consistency in every case was ketamine," said county police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn. Cash, morphine and other drugs were stolen during some of the burglaries, she said. Called "Special K" or "K" when used illegally, often at dance clubs or raves, ketamine belongs to the disassociative anesthetics class of drugs, which induce separation of perception and sensation.
