The network in custody in Służewiec

“Due to the severe punishment they face and the real fear of fraud, a preventive measure in the form of pre-trial detention is being applied to eleven defendants,” the PK said.

The group, which – according to investigators – was led by Przemysław J., produced and traded amphetamine on a large scale, and also sold marijuana and other psychoactive substances, including mephedrone. Over time, Przemysław J. established close cooperation with Krystian S. from Żyrardów, who was in custody in Warsaw's Służewiec district.

According to investigators, the man created a large-scale distribution network in custody, both in amphetamines and a new psychoactive substance. Additionally, Krystian S. traded mephedrone, clophedrone and clephedrone, which were found during searches carried out in the detention center. He also dealt with the distribution of the so-called anabolics.

“Krystian S. directed the group's activities both inside and outside the prison, using illegally possessed mobile phones. At the time of his arrest, while in his cell, he communicated with a person who was handing drugs to an officer of the Prison Service,” the National Prosecutor's Office said.

During the investigation, the prosecutor found that Krystian S. managed his own network of prisoners from the prison who were involved in distributing drugs within the prison. The drugs were supplied from outside by people, including: Prison Service officers responsible for collecting them and bringing them to the detention facility.

Families paid, there was a special system

The National Prosecutor's Office explained that the group had developed a special method of settlement related to drug trafficking in custody. Payments were made by people close to the buyers, “masking” them by specifying the title of the transfer, e.g. “game”, “parcel”, “extracts”, “for R”, “television”.
