Police investigating the deaths of three men from a suspected batch of rogue drugs have charged one man and bailed two others.

Adrian Lubecki, 19, of St Matthews Street in Ipswich, has been charged with being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs (ecstasy) and possession with intent to supply a class B drug. He was remanded in custody to appear at Ipswich Magistrates' Court tomorrow.

A 20-year-old man and a 26-year-old man from Ipswich, arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs, have been released on police bail pending further investigation. Both are due to return in mid-February.

The arrests follow the deaths of two young men in Ipswich on Christmas Eve and New Year's Day and a third man in Rendlesham, Suffolk.

Officers are linking the first two deaths, of a 22-year-old and a 24-year-old, and investigating a possible connection with the third man, aged 20.

The death of a man in Telford, Shropshire, is also being linked to the rogue drugs.

A fifth man, also found on New Year's Day, was taken to hospital and is making a recovery, Suffolk Police added.

They are urging anyone in possession of the red triangular pills marked with a distinctive Superman logo to hand them in.
