Police issue substance warning following Macclesfield incident

November 17, 2014, 5:52 pm

Shortly after 8.15pm on Saturday 15 November 2014, three teenagers were treated at hospital after taking what is believed to be an illegal substance at an under 18 event in Macclesfield.

A 14-year old boy and a 14-year old girl were taken to Macclesfield District General Hospital and were discharged following treatment. A 14-year old girl remains at hospital in an improving condition. Other teenagers were spoken to by ambulance staff at the scene.

Sergeant Adam Alexander, Macclesfield CID, said: “We understand that this has been a shocking incident to both the teenagers involved and their families. We continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding what happened and our enquiries into this incident remain ongoing. Anyone with information can pass it on to Macclesfield Police.”
Two boys, aged 16 and 17, from Sale, were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply and have since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
As part of the investigation police have seized a quantity of tablets. The tablets are in a variety of colours, including red, orange, green, yellow and white, and are believed to be referred to as ′Nintendos′. Tests are underway to establish what substance they are.
The investigation continues and anyone who may have information in relation to the case should call the police on 101 quoting incident 903 of 15/11/2014, or anonymously to Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.
