Drugs found in toy egg by child in Limavady believed to be meth-amphetamine

1 Mins read

A small bag of white powder was handed to police on Sunday, 29 May by a member of the public after a young boy found it in the Drumachose area of Limavady.

Inspector Colin Shaw said: “The contents of the bag, which was found inside a toy egg, is believed to be meth amphetamine. This small quantity of drugs will be disposed of by police.

Inspector Shaw continued: “This incident is of the uppermost concern for all of us. Tackling the use and supply of illegal drugs is a priority for us and the possibility that something so potentially dangerous has been discarded where children could find it is deeply concerning.

“We work continually with partners in education, youth provision and health services to educate people about the dangers of drugs and to deter them from becoming involved in drugs. We can only be successful in our efforts when we work together. I would ask everyone in the local community to help us and if you have information about the sale or misuse of illegal drugs, please contact us on 101. It is only with your assistance and information that we can identify offenders and bring them to justice.

“I don’t want members of the local community to find drugs on their street, however this incident just reminds us that criminals have no regard whatsoever for the safety of local residents, and I am thankful that this child had the sense to speak to an adult about what he discovered.”
