Police warn of dangerous methamphetamine “ice” in Finland

Law enforcement officials say they suspect that roughly two kilograms of methamphetamine crystals, otherwise known as “ice”, have been smuggled into Finland over a one-year period. They have identified more than 30 suspects in connection with the illegal drug trade.

Helsinki police say that they suspect that just under two kilograms of methamphetamine-like crystals were brought into the country between summer last year and July this year. They described the substance as very dangerous, saying that they had not previously encountered it in Finland.

“The dosage and amount sold have clearly been smaller than in the amphetamine trade. One gram can yield more than 30 user doses,” Detective Petri Rainiala of the Helsinki police department said in a statement Monday.
