Five incidents & two Deaths Linked to Drugs in the Area

dc6MooMc9Gwent Police are extremely concerned after five incidents were reported this week potentially linked to the ingestion of heroin. Three of these incidents have sadly resulted in people losing their lives.  These incidents have all occurred between 23rd October 2016 and 28th October 2016 in the Caerphilly, Newport and Blaenau Gwent areas.

DI Leigh Mears said: “It is not clear whether all these tragic events are directly related, however, I cannot rule out the possibility that the deaths and the medical emergencies are linked to the same batch of heroin. “The use of heroin is of course illegal, but I would urge anyone using the drug to be especially cautious and vigilant. If they experience any unusual symptoms after taking drugs, they should seek medical attention immediately.”

If you have any concerns or any information relating to illegal drug supply in your area please call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
