The Judicial Police Territorial Team (ETPJ) investigated on July 12th a 39 year old foreign national, accused of a crime against public health, namely the sale of drugs on the Internet without the corresponding medical prescriptions.
The investigation was initiated when the agents found an advert in a "for sale" group on Facebook which offered an erectile dysfunction drug (sildenafil citrate) at a cost of 15 euros.
On the forum, he offered a telephone number and included a photograph of several boxes of medicines marked with their country of origin.
Police investigated the person responsible for the advertisement and arrested him because he was unauthorised to sell the prescription only medication.
He is due to appear in an Arrecife court.
