Two people arrested after three girls fell ill after taking ecstasy in Salford have been bailed.
Shortly before 9.50pm on Saturday 18 June 2016, police were called to Salford Precinct to reports that three girls aged 12 and from Salford, had taken ecstasy pills described as ‘Teddy Tablets.’
All three were taken to hospital. One girl will be discharged from hospital today and two remain in a stable condition.
A man aged 22 and a woman aged 21 were arrested on suspicion of being in possession of a controlled substance and bailed until 15 July 2016.
Detective Chief Inspector Chris Walker, of GMP’s Salford Borough, said:
Sadly, three more young people, who are only 12-years-old, have taken ecstasy and ended up in hospital.
The girls took a type of ecstasy described as ‘Teddy Tablets.’ It is imperative young people understand the implications and avoid taking drugs, to stop any more young people ending up in hospital.
Over the past few months we have had the death of a 17-year-old girl and the hospitalisation of three young people, all after taking a variation of ecstasy.
We will continue to repeat our warnings in the hope that young people will think twice before taking drugs, after seeing the damage they cause to lives. People taking these drugs don’t know what they contain or what effect they will have. It’s not worth the risk of ending up in hospital or even suffering fatal consequences.
If anyone is in possession of these tablets, or other drugs, I would urge you to hand in to police, a chemist, or other medical practitioner immediately.
Anyone with information about where this drug may have come from is asked to contact police on 101 as soon as possible, or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
