The preliminary investigation into drug deaths has progressed

The police’s preliminary investigation seems to confirm that the pink powdery substance sold as amphetamine is connected to the four deaths that occurred in Rovaniemi last week, says

The substance is suspected to be ethylone instead of amphetamine. Ethylon is classified as a narcotic and its effects are similar to amphetamine. The substance is only confirmed when the forensic laboratory’s statements and the suspected connection to the deaths are received, when the medical examiner has issued a statement on the cause of death.

The police are still investigating the cases as drug crimes and as normal investigations into the cause of death. It is possible that as the preliminary investigation progresses, the titles will become more precise. With regard to deaths, it could be a case of wrongdoing or aggravated wrongdoing.

According to current information, there are four deaths related to the matter and two people are suspected to have been hospitalized. Those who had to be hospitalized have already been released from the hospital.

The investigation has revealed nine suspected narcotics offenses, of which, except for one, the others are suspected to be related to the entity under investigation. Eight people have been arrested on suspicion of drug crimes, five of whom are suspected of being connected to this group.

The police suspect that the person who originally acquired the substance is one of the deceased. At least three of those who died are suspected to have known each other. During the investigation, the pink substance in question has been seized from several places. The police suspect that the substance was originally obtained from the internet and possibly originates from China. Initially, the substance is suspected to have been “rock-like”, which was then chopped into a powder and another substance was added as an extension. One of the suspects has voluntarily delivered the substance in powder form to the police.

The police are still appealing to citizens to get the rest of the dangerous substance off the street.

According to the police’s understanding, the overall situation is clear on a general level, i.e. the police consider that they have mainly identified the persons who are suspected of having received larger amounts of the substance and possibly spreading it. Not all persons to whom the substance may have ended up are known to the police. The events that have come to light are limited to the Rovaniemi area.

The police appeal to anyone who knows something about the matter to contact the police, so that the potentially life-threatening substance that is still in circulation can be quickly removed from the street shop.
