NSW police continue to warn about the use of illicit drugs as two boys taken to hospital

Police are continuing to warn the community about the dangers of using illicit drugs following an incident on the state’s Central Coast, NSW Police say.

About 12pm on Sunday 24 July 2016, two boys aged 10 and 11 were taken to Wyong Hospital suffering what is believed to be the effects of an illicit drug, after being located by a witness near a skate park at Lake Haven.

The pair underwent drug testing and doctors were able to detect traces of ‘ice’ in their system. They were treated for hallucinations before being discharged about 6pm.

Officers attached to Tuggerah Lakes Local Area Command are investigating the incident.

Police urge young people to be aware of dangers of using illicit drugs and the harm they can do.

Liaison officers work closely with schools throughout the state to educate young people that

all drugs are dangerous; you never know how the drugs will affect you and there is never a guarantee as to what you are taking.
