Police in Beersheba announced on Thursday they seized from a warehouse more than 3.5 tons of chemicals used to manufacture the "kiosk drug" known as "Nice Guy."

One thousand baggies of ready to sell Nice Guy were also found in the warehouse that was also used as a manufacturing laboratory of the drug.

Police investigators along with border police forces uncovered the load of chemicals two weeks ago, which would be enough drugs to create 1.3 million baggies of the Nice Guy drug.

"Kiosk drugs are very dangerous and potentially fatal. They are manufactured by chemicals that are made in non-controlled laboratories." Moshe Ivgi, the commander of the Beersheba police, told journalists on Thursday.

Ivgi said that the drug-lab's operators were known and that police were trying to track them down.  

Police estimated, that post manufacturing, the chemicals seized would have resulted in a profit of 70 million shekels for the drug sellers.
