Police are investigating whether the 20-year-old sold MDMA to a person who then supplied it to Ross-King. He has been charged with supplying a small quantity of a prohibited drug, but not in relation to Ross-King.

The 23-year-old man has been charged with possessing a prohibited drug, two counts of supplying a prohibited drug (between indictable and commercial quantity), and two counts of supplying a small prohibited drug.
