New police warning over substance abuse as girls hospitalised

Detectives in Bodmin are currently investigating an incident which left two teenagers needing medical assistance following suspected substance abuse in Bodmin, and are warning people to stay away from drugs and other unknown substances.

Officers were notified at about 11:00 pm Sunday 29 July to reports of two teenage girls who had taken an unknown substance and became very unwell as a result.

The girls, a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old, were both taken to Treliske Hospital where their condition was stabilised. The 16-year-old girl was later released from the hospital, while the 17-year-old girl is currently still recovering in hospital.

“We are urging young people to stay away from substances. You do not know what is in them or how strong the drug may be or how your body will react to them.”
