Police are searching for a drug dealer, who sold sweets laced with LSD to four teenagers in Grantchester.

On 9th of July, officers were called to support ambulance staff at Byron's Pool in Grantchester where 4 young males who had taken liquid LSD.

They were found in varying states of distress and confusion. One was being physically restrained by a parent who had been called to the scene by worried friends.

All four were in a very vulnerable state and they were taken to hospital for treatment. They have subsequently told police that they had bought the drug from a local dealer who had put the liquid LSD on  sweets for each of them to eat.

Police say the alert is to highlight the risks of taking LSD, which is potentially more potent in liquid form. Without the intervention of friends and family, and then the work of the emergency services, officers say the situation could easily have ended in tragedy.

Officers are asking anyone with information on the dealer to contact them on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
