The amount would be enough to produce more than 400,000 doses, the police said. A 40-year-old Turk, Yalcin Y., was caught red-handed when attempting to sell a larger amount of caffeine-tinged amphetamine. He was carrying a gun for which he had no licence. The man was accused of illegal drug activities and illegal gun possession.
