An Ipswich man has pleaded guilty to being involved in the supply of drugs to one of the men who died from a rogue batch of ecstasy known as “Superman” tablets.

Adrian Lubecki, 19, of St Matthew’s Street in Ipswich, pleaded guilty to two charges when he appeared via video-link at Ipswich Crown Court today.

He admitted to one charge of being concerned in the supply of a class A drug, known as PMMA, to another between December 21 and January 2. This was linked to one of the deaths of three men in Suffolk over Christmas and New Year.

He also pleaded guilty to possessing a class B drug, amphetamines, with intent to supply on January 2.

Prosecutor Peter Gair told the court there was evidence through text messages of Lubecki supplying to others over a period of time.

The court heard it is alleged that Lubecki played a significant role in dealing drugs in the streets and the case was related to about 400-450 pills discovered in the Norwich Road area of Ipswich.

Lubecki is due to be sentenced some time during the week starting February 16.
