The police arrested a twenty-nine-year-old owner of a pizzeria: he had received a liter of GBL via the internet. It would have yielded over 15,000 euros
VERONA. Another drug seizure of rape in Verona, after the case of the party organized by Luca Morisi, Matteo Salvini’s spin doctor. The Verona mobile squad this time arrested a 29-year-old merchant, owner of a pizzeria in Borgo Milano. It is GPM, resident in the Scaligero capital.
The men of the Anti-drug Section through a targeted activity acquired the report of this drug trafficking which involved the trader, who, according to information, was waiting to receive a courier in his pizzeria via a package from abroad, containing liquid drug of the Gbl type, also called “the rape drug”.
The police stationed outside the restaurant, around 12 on Tuesday, saw the courier arrive who delivered the package to the owner of the pizzeria. At that point the agents came out. The subsequent search made it possible to ascertain that there was a bottle containing a liter of odorless and colorless liquid substance which, through technical analyzes carried out in the laboratory of the Regional Cabinet of Scientific Police of Padua, was found to be of the Gamma Butyrolactone type (mutual called Gbl).
The men of the Flying Squad have illegally arrested GPM for substance for the purpose of drug dealing. The judge of the Court of Verona validated the arrest by subjecting it to the precautionary measure of the obligation of presentation to the judicial police. The Flying Squad is continuing the investigations to trace the country of origin of the drug and the identification of who carried out the shipment.
According to some approximations, since it is an amazing substance that is spreading rapidly on the market and whose price is constantly fluctuating it would cost a few hundred euros, with a liter you would also get 1800 doses, for a hypothetical income of over 15 thousand euros. It is a subtle and dangerous substance, very powerful, capable of inhibiting the ability to understand and want and inhibiting brakes. The side effects are not long lasting, but they are immediate (they occur between 5 and 20 minutes after taking) and above all they are devastating: loss of the sense of reality, of coordination skills, nausea, respiratory problems and memory problems. It is generally dissolved in a drink, a beer or a cocktail, due to its colorless and practically odorless nature so that the victim may not be aware of taking it. Among other things, the presence of this drug in the body is rapidly metabolized and eliminated by the body so that it is difficult to detect traces.
After the case of Luca Morisi, with the seizure of a bottle of Gbl, the police therefore raised attention to the circulation of this type of drug.
