“Ecstasy commonly referred to as Gaw Gaw or a quick fix in the streets is a highly potent psychoactive drug that causes confusion, anxiety, depression and a compulsive drug seeking behavior. The most dangerous aspect relates to abusers using such drugs that are without quality standards or in combination with other types of drugs. Such a behavior can result in immediate or permanent confusion or even loss of life.
“We therefore call on the public particularly to youth to value their lives and work on their future. Equally, we call on the public to remain alert and report suspicious criminal related activities to law enforcement operatives because we cannot be everywhere at all times. The suspect is currently in custody as operative’s further probe into the matter.”
