Carnforth man arrested in connection with contaminated vapes investigation

A Carnforth man has been arrested in connection with a police investigation into contaminated vapes being sold to teenagers.

In recent weeks, there has been a number of teens falling ill after smoking vapes containing THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, which is a class B drug.

Yesterday (Thursday February 15), police arrested a 19-year-old male, from Carnforth, on suspicion of Possession with Intent to Supply a Class B drug.  He has been released under investigation.

A spokesperson for Lancaster Area Police said: ‘’THC vapes are illegal in the UK, to possess, sell, or supply, because vaping THC typically allows a larger amount of chemical to be inhaled which can lead to serious health risks, especially if in the hands of a young person.

‘’We ask that parents are vigilant to what their child may be buying or using.’’

If you have any information about people supplying these THC vapes, contact 101 or email PC Hayton on 4203@lancashire.police.uk
