POLICE are warning residents of the risks of using illegal drugs with larger MDMA tablets with higher purity levels are thought to be in circulation.
These drugs appear to have the TELSA logo on them and officers are concerned for people who may take them and do not know the content of what they are taking.
Det Ch Insp Ally Wright said: “It is not only illegal to buy and sell drugs but can also be very dangerous, and potentially fatal. We are urging the public not to be tempted to take any illegal drugs – you don’t know what they are made of, where they have come from or what effects they may have on you.
“However, it is our duty to alert people to the fact that there appears to be a particular batch of MDMA tablets in circulation which are larger than normal and have a significantly higher purity of MDMA, this means that the health risk associated with taking these tablets could be even higher.”
Anyone with information on the supply of illegal drugs should contact police on the non emergency 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 and information on drug abuse is available by calling FRANK on 0300 1236600.
