A priest, Don Francesco Spagnesi, involved in a police investigation into parties based on cocaine and GBL, the so-called “rape drug”, was arrested for drug dealing in Prato. The news was communicated during the press conference held by the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Prato. Spagnesi, 40, ended up under house arrest at the behest of the investigating magistrate Francesca Scarlatti, who accepted the request for a precautionary measure presented by the prosecutor: the accusations are of the sale and import of drugs.
Prato, parish priest suspected of drug-based parties. The prosecutor: “So we came to the arrest”
According to what has been learned, the investigations began last August after the arrest of a man found in possession of a liter of Gbl imported from Holland. The drug, explains TvPrato.it, was sold, together with cocaine, to dozens of people (over 200 contacts under the magnifying glass of the investigators), some of whom used them for illegal parties. The investigations continue: according to what has been ascertained, the priest drew from the parish coffers for the purchase of drugs. A few days ago Don Francesco had left his posts in the Parish of the Annunciation in the Prato district of Castellina.
