NSW Police Force has put out a warning for people using illegal drugs after suspected drug overdoses left two men in hospital.
Police believe the two men are being treated after ingesting an unknown substance which was in a black, clip-seal bag labelled ‘Australia’s No. 1’. Both men attended an exhibition at Darling Harbour.
Bankstown Police Area Command Duty Officer, Chief Inspector Brad Thorne issued a warning to the community about the risks of taking illicit substances - you don’t know what you are putting into your body and the effects it may have.
“There is a reason why drugs are illegal – they are very dangerous and can be harmful and in some cases, end in death,” Chief Inspector Thorne said.
“You need to ask yourself; is it really worth gambling with your life?”.
Anyone with information about the source of the substance is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
