A 42-year-old man from Lithuania has been sentenced to 13 years in prison for the manufacture and sale of amphetamines and the possession of firearms. The verdict was delivered by the court in Odense on Thursday. In all, three men were convicted in the case.
The 42-year-old Lithuanian was the main defendant in the extensive case of both production and sale of amphetamines on Fyn (Funen). In addition to him, a 38-year-old man from Poland was sentenced to 7 years in prison. He was convicted of possession of both amphetamines and cocaine, which were found stored in various places in nature around his residence.
In addition, a 37-year-old Turkish man was sentenced to 2 years and 6 months in prison for buying 330 grams of cocaine and 110 grams of amphetamines for resale by the Polish man.
The production of amphetamines took place at two locations in Harndrup and Søndersø, respectively, on northwestern Funen. The main defendant was convicted for the production of at least 15.5 kg of amphetamine.
At the arrest in May 2018, he was in possession of 1.7 kg of amphetamine. In total, he is convicted of possession of approximately 19 kilos of amphetamine – part of it was hidden by the convicted pole.
The 42-year-old Lithuanian was also convicted of possession of more weapons and ammunition under particularly aggravating circumstances – that is to say in a public place.
The convicted Lithuanian and the convicted pole were both expelled from Denmark. The Turkish man was conditionally expelled from Denmark.
The Lithuanian man has appealed to his judgement, while the Polish and Turkish men both requested a period of reflection.
