Police warning over 'Speckled Rolex' ecstasy pills after one man dies
The ecstasy-like yellow pills have been linked to the death of one and hospitalisation of four others in Northern Ireland
Police in Northern Ireland have issued a warning over yellow ecstasy-like tablets after one man died and four others were admitted to hospital.
The pills, known as “Speckled Rolex” have been linked to the death at a property in West Belfast on Friday evening.
It is is believed the dead man may have consumed the pills at a house party in the Thornhill Court area of Dunmurry. A post-mortem examination is to be carried out.
Four other men were taken to hospital but are in a stable condition, the Police Service of Northern Ireland said.
Police have said that anybody with Speckled Rolex tablets or any other illegal drugs should dispose of them immediately.
SDLP councillor Brian Heading told the BBC: “The tragic loss of life of a man in Twinbrook yesterday evening will be a devastating blow to his family and friends particularly at this time of the year.
“It is clear that whoever may be supplying this drug has no regard whatsoever for human life.
“I would ask the local community to co-operate with the police during the course of this investigation and come forward with any information that may be relevant.”
Earlier this year fake ecstasy pills known as ‘green Rolex' tablets which contained toxic chemicals were linked to the deaths of several people in Northern Ireland.
