Medics prevented three potential drugs deaths this week, and police are warning more could be at risk after a rogue batch was sold in Welshpool.
Dyfed-Powys Police have arrested a 27 year-old on suspicion of supplying the local drugs market with rogue amphetamines and have sent out a warning that more of the batch could still be in circulation.
A police statement said: “Three people have so far been admitted to hospital this week suffering from the adverse effects of amphetamine. Without immediate medical attention, there could have been fatalities. All persons have since left hospital.”
The arrested man is currently on police bail pending further enquiries and police are urging the public to be on their guard, especially drug users.
Detective Inspector Owain Richards said: “Dyfed-Powys Police work closely with partner agencies in the county through the Community Safety Partnership to protect families and communities from substance misuse through prevention, enforcement and treatment, and a multi-agency approach is being taken to these incidents.”
Anyone who has any information regarding substance misuse is urged to contact Dyfed Powys Police on 101. Or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
