Police seize ‘pill press’

Police investigation continues as arrests take place The Police have not confirmed

DYFED Powys Police have now

confirmed to The Herald that a number of people have now been ar- rested as part of an ongoing inves- tigation into the circumstances lead- ing to the death of two young men in Milford Haven in late July. The Herald now understands that some of those who have been arrested are currently being investigated for the suspected manufacturing and supply- ing of drugs. A police spokesman said “Dyfed- Powys Police is continuing to investi- gate the circumstances into two deaths in Milford Haven on 26.7.13 and 30.7.13” “The police are not linking the

deaths at this stage. In addition, a num- ber of individuals who were arrested for drug-related offences during that week have been released on bail pend- ing further enquiries” The Herald has learned that on Au-

gust 1st the Police went to the location of an alleged ‘industrial pill-making machine’ which was awaiting repair at a local engineering firm. There is no indication or suggestion that the firm knew the device’s purpose. Speaking exclusively to The Her-

ald, the owner of the engineering firm, whose identity we are protecting, said: “We had been dropped the machine by a gentleman wanting it to be repaired; we had not started looking at it yet, as we had not received any payment. “The police have now seized the machine” he told us. The Herald has been told by a

source close to the investigation that as part of their ongoing drugs investi- gation, Police are looking at a home- made substance called ‘Diet Coke’. “It’s a mixture of Benzocaine and Ethylphenidate and is a white powder similar to cocaine” our source told us.

whether ‘Diet Coke’ is one of the sub- jects of their investigation and have given no indication of its role in either man’s death.

Research carried out by the Her-

ald indicates that Benzocaine is a lo- cal anaesthetic often found in the UK as an impurity in street cocaine. While giving a numbing effect similar to co- caine on user’s gums, it does not actu- ally produce the effects of real cocaine. Ethylphenidate, sometime called ‘Eph’ or ‘Ep’, is a potent psycho-stimulant with potentially lethal side-effects on the heart and lungs.

Although the drug is not controlled

at the moment in the UK, passing off the drug as cocaine would constitute a criminal offence. It is illegal under cur- rent medicines legislation to sell, sup- ply or advertise such a drug for human consumption.
