Police warning as drugs laced with veterinary chemicals discovered in Pembrokeshire

First published in News

Police are warning the public about the dangers of taking drugs after an analysis of a recent drug seizure in Pembrokeshire found a mixture of cocaine and the veterinary anti-worming drug Levamisole.

Levamisole can cause significant adverse reactions in humans.

Temporary Detective Sergeant Mark Richards said: “This is the first time that test results have come back showing this product as being mixed in with the cocaine in the Pembrokeshire area.

“ Chemicals such as Levamisole are known to cause health problems for users.

“Drug dealers are only interested in making money, so users can never be really sure what they are taking or what is contained in a substance when they are supplied by illegal sources.

“Users need to be aware of the dangers and understand the potentially devastating effect it can have on their health. I would urge people to avoid such products and report any information to the police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
