It was three boys who were behind the poisoning of the drinking water in Greve last week. A boy aged 15 and two boys aged 12 haves admitted that they found the glass of strychnine — also known as rat-poison — in an abandoned house in Greve and threw it into the reservoir at the well.
It remains a mystery how the poison could get in contact with the water in the closed-circuit pipe system, but the police are continuing investigations.
No mention of the ethnic background of the boys, and it’s not really that interesting anyway IMHO.
According to a UPI story, a Danish reservoir has been poisoned with strychnine.
Investigators believe that someone dumped rat poison in one of the wells that provides water for Greve Municipality outside Copenhagen, the Copenhagen Post reported. The well’s Plexiglass cover was smashed open.- - - - - - - - - -
“The episode worries me, because you think, what’ll it be next,” Erik Jurlander, a manager at Greve Waterworks told the newspaper Politiken. “We have coded locks for the waterworks, a sea of alarms and 24-hour security guards who are immediately notified if one of the alarms sounds.”
Have “youths” been at work?
And is this the shape of things to come?
