Police in New Westminster, B.C., recommend charges in teen’s fatal drug overdose
NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. — Police say they’re recommending criminal charges in connection with the overdose death of a teenager in New Westminster, B.C.
Police in the suburban Vancouver city say they’ve arrested a suspect believed to be responsible for selling a drug that killed a 16-year-old girl and led to another teen being hospitalized in May.
School officials said at the time of the death that both teens were involved in a small program for vulnerable students.
Police issued a warning about the lethal drug following the death and later identified the substance as MDMA.
Officers have submitted a report to Crown counsel recommending the suspect be charged with two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance.
The charges have not been laid and the suspect, who isn’t named, has been released on an undertaking to the court.
