A fifteen year old teenager from the Trafford area was arrested today July 12 on suspicion of supplying class A drugs to a 13-year-old boy in Timperley and is in custody.
Police were called at around 4.30pm on July 9 to Timperley Metrolink station to reports that a teenage boy had become unwell.
The 13-year-old boy was hospitalised for taking what is believed to be MDMA, and is still in a critical but stable condition.
Whilst it is believed he took MDMA further tests are being carried out.
Detective Inspector Carl Gilbert from GMP’s Trafford borough said: “Our thoughts remain with the boy’s family at this difficult time.
“Sadly this is another example of the consequences of taking drugs and I would urge anyone who is tempted to take drugs to stop and thing about the implications.
“You don’t know what they contain or how they could affect you, so please don’t risk it.
“Our investigations continue to progress and our officers are speaking with a teenage boy in custody and making further enquires.
“I would still urge anyone who has any information about this incident to please call us on 101.
“Also if anyone is in possession of these drugs I would urge them to hand them in to the police and if you have taken any then please go to hospital immediately as precaution to get yourself checked over.”
