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.
Police are linking the deaths of two men in Ipswich, 22-year-old Justas Ropas, who died at a property in Bramford Lane on Christmas Eve and 24-year-old Gediminas Kulokas, who died at Provan Court on New Year’s Day, to the drug and investigating links to a third death, that of 20-year-old John Hocking, who died at Chestnut Close, Rendlesham, also on January 1.
A second man found in a serious condition at the Provan Court address was rushed to Ipswich Hospital where he is “making a recovery”, a Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said.
