'Two of the three deaths in Belgian drug lab are Eindhoven residents'

At least two of the three men found dead on Wednesday in a drug lab in Poederlee, Belgium, are Eindhoven residents. This is what the Eindhovens Dagblad writes. It is still unknown whether the third death also comes from that city.

Council chamber

A fourth victim who was resuscitated at the drug lab is a 59-year-old man with Turkish roots who may be from the Netherlands. He is out of danger and must appear before the council chamber in Turnhout on Tuesday, which will decide on his further arrest.

The suspect was brought before the investigating judge on Thursday, who decided to arrest him on suspicion of ‘the production of psychotropic substances in association with death’. According to Flemish media, the Turkish man was said to have been the “drug cook”.


The drug lab was found on Wednesday above a pizzeria and a liquor store just outside the village center of the town of Poederlee, near Lille in Belgium. It is suspected that amphetamine was produced in the drug lab, which released toxic fumes. The room in which the deaths occurred had only just been rented to a Dutchman.


An autopsy and a toxicological examination will be carried out during the judicial investigation, the Antwerp public prosecutor’s office reports. The results of these investigations should provide more clarity about the cause of death of the three victims.

Previous fatal incident

It is not the first time that Dutch people have died in a Belgian drug lab. On January 29, 2019, three men were found dead in a drug lab in Hechtel-Eksel, Belgium, about 30 kilometers from Eindhoven. The victims were 22, 23 and 25 years old and came from Eindhoven and Valkenswaard. The trio had ingested carbon monoxide during their stay, which was fatal.
