An Ipswich teenager has appeared in court this morning following the deaths of three men from a suspected batch of rogue drugs.
Adrian Lubecki, 19, of St Matthews Street in Ipswich, was charged with being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs (ecstasy) and possession with intent to supply a class B drug.
After a short appearance at South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court in Ipswich today, he was remanded in custody. No plea was indicated, and the case was committed to Ipswich Crown Court on January 15.
The charge follows the deaths of two young men in Ipswich on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day and a third man in Rendlesham.
Police are urging anyone in possession of the red triangular pills marked with a distinctive ‘Superman’ logo to hand them in to prevent further deaths.
