Four men in  the age  range 0f 30-40 years old are accused of smuggling hundreds of liters of GBL – also known as liquid – from Poland to Gjovik.
The police discovered GBL, which is used for the production of the drug GHB, when they targeted the set that they assume are behind the smuggling in late January, the newspaper Oppland Arbeiderblad reports.
The drug is smuggled from Poland to Gjovik and is then resold to other places in the country, the police said.
– Some of them have confessed to the crime. Their explanations have strengthened our suspicions about both the  importation and the resale. As indicated by  the large quantity, the substance is not only sold to the local market. We have worked towards Oslo as well as the Inland district, says chief investigator Paul Leonardsen in Inland Police told the newspaper.
Three of the people indicted are Polish nationals, two of these are resident in the Gjøvik area. The last of the four is a Norwegian citizen who is also a resident of  the Gjøvik area.
One of the the four who are indicted, a 41 year old Pole, denies guilt, but has admitted to using a  false ID to the police. A 32 year-old Polish man living in Gjøvik area confessed to importing  260 liters of GBL to Norway, and was released from custody under the condition that he submitted his passport to the police and committed himself to meet the police at certain appointed times. The police have appealed this decision
