During the criminal investigations with the LKA Upper Austria, it turned out that the drugs were handed over mainly in the residential building in the Ried district. On January 28, the suspect and his 35-year-old girlfriend were arrested immediately after they saw a drug deal.
During a search of the apartment building, the police found another 300 grams of amphetamine in the suspect’s room and seized it. Drug paraphernalia and drugs were found in almost every room in the house. Harvested hemp plants, two so-called grow boxes and technical equipment for professional cannabis production were secured in the basement of the residential building. As a result, three members of the community, a 32-year-old, a 28-year-old and a 29-year-old, were reported to the Ried public prosecutor for preparing the drug trade.
The 39-year-old admitted that he had imported amphetamine from Germany to Austria and that he had profitably marketed portions of the drug in the Ried area to finance his livelihood. The police calculations resulted in a total of 3,000 to a maximum of 6,000 grams of amphetamine. He was taken to Ried Prison. The police officers were also able to track down and report a total of 20 drug buyers.
