Illegal Drugs Seized in Cheshire

 

Illegal drugs have been taken off the streets of mid Cheshire.

Police have seized around 1,500 tablets from an address in Winsford.

The tablets, which are a similar size and shape as an Ecstasy tablet, are pink and have the letter M embossed on them.

They were seized from an address in the town last month and forensic tests have shown that they contain the ingredient Methoxyamphetamine − PMA.

Investigations into where the drugs originated from are continuing.

DC Paul Nolan said: "This is a significant seizure that has resulted in a large amount of illegal drugs being taken off the streets. Our enquiries are continuing into where the drugs originated from and where they were intending on being distributed."

Warnings have recently been issued nationally regarding ‘Pink Ecstasy′.

This particular type of drug does not have the same effect or take effect as quickly as an ecstasy tablet and, as a result, users may be tempted to take more than usual to achieve a high − putting themselves at greater risk.

This latest seizure is part of ongoing efforts by Cheshire Police to crackdown on illegal drugs.

DC Nolan added: "We are committed to tackling drug related crime. Drug related activity is not acceptable and we will not tolerate any sort of behaviour that has a negative effect on the quality of life of the local community.

"We are sharing information regarding illegal drugs with other forces and are also working closely alongside health authorities to ensure that the dangers of this type of drug are highlighted.

"Information from members of the public is also vital in the fight against drug related crime and we would urge local residents to support the efforts of officers by passing on any information in relation to suspected drug use or supply in their area.

"We would also encourage anyone with any information specifically regarding ‘pink ecstasy′ tablets to come forward."

Anyone with any information about illegal drugs is urged to call Cheshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
