Deworming medicine in cocaine seizure, say police

Drugs seized in Pembrokeshire contained a mixture of cocaine and a veterinary deworming medicine, say Dyfed-Powys Police.

Det Sgt Mark Richards said the consumption of Levamisole could cause health problems for users, adding it was the first time such chemicals had been found in illegal drugs locally.

"Drug dealers are only interested in making money, so users can never be really sure what they are taking," he said.
