POLICE have charged a 17-year-old in connection with the incident in which a 14-year-old boy was treated in hospital after taking half an Ecstasy tablet.
The PSNI have warned the public about the potential dangers posed by as yet unidentified tablets described as “Darth Vaders”.
The warning follows an incident in the Holywood area on Saturday 28 January which led to a 14 year old boy being treated in hospital for renal failure after reportedly consuming just half of one tablet.
In relation to this incident a 17 year old male was arrested on Sunday 29 January on suspicion of possession of a class A controlled drug and possession of a class A controlled drug with intent to supply.
He will face Newtownards Youth Court tomorrow, Tuesday, January 31 for first remand hearing.
The PSNI will send the tablets off for a full toxicology examination.
