Arrest made in New Westminster teen overdose

Teenager overdosed on MDMA this spring

New Westminster Police are recommending charges in the case of a New Westminster teen who overdosed in May.

The 16-year-old teenage girl died after consuming what was later discovered to be MDMA. The pills taken by the girl and another teen were at first thought to have been a mix of MDMA and another drug but police testing ruled that out.

Police have arrested one suspect and are recommending charges of two counts of trafficking a controlled substance.

At the time, Sgt. Jeff Scott warned against taking recreational drugs.

“There is always a risk when taking drugs and the only way of staying safe is to avoid drugs altogether,” Scott says.
