Warning following death

Police and Health Agencies are warning drug users to be careful following the potential link to the death of a teenager today.

17-year-old Jared Harrison was found dead this morning in a house in St Helier. Early indications suggest he could have been taking a white powder purporting to be MDMA, a class A drug.

It is believed this was brought into the island in recent days.

His death is currently under investigation; however police would like to warn anyone who has purchased this powder not to take it.

Two teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of importation of a controlled substance.

Detective Chief Inspector Alison Fossey said: “Whilst this is an active investigation and we are limited in what we can say while that continues, we need to warn people of the dangers of taking any drug, in particular this one.

“If you have purchased this drug please do not take it, and please call us with any information relating to its origin either through the CID number of 612200 or via Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
