About the detention of two 29-year-olds in connection with the death of a 20-year-old at a gas station in Łódźsaid the spokeswoman of the Provincial Police Headquarters in Łódź, Commissioner Aneta Sobieraj. – The first of the men was detained on July 20 at around 7.30 pm. Police officers reached his place of residence in the Bałuty district. During the search, they found over 18 grams of suspicious substances on him. Preliminary tests showed that it was methamphetamine, Sobieraj said. And she added that “crime documents” and a previously stolen bicycle were also found. The officers also secured the Renault in which the 20-year-old arrived at the gas station.
The second man was arrested a few minutes after midnight. – After checking the police databases, it turned out that he is a wanted person to serve a prison sentence. In addition, he was in possession of more than eight grams of narcotic substances, the spokeswoman said. Both detainees will be questioned. – We are also waiting for the results of the autopsy of the 20-year-old to determine the cause of his death and whether the robbery committed by the 29-year-olds had an impact on his death – said the police officer.
