(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Mankato Police say they've made four arrests related to a designer drug linked to two deaths in the last 8 days.

As we reported, a 22-year-old man and 17-year-old female died in separate incidents. While the deaths happened on different days at different places, officers at each scene found a similar blue baggie with images of gold colored crowns. 

Investigators say the baggies may have contained a pill or powder, possibly synthetic LSD or synthetic cocaine, commonly called “2-C.”

Police made four arrests without incident, charging them with various controlled substance violations.

  • Tyler Anthony Caputo, age 22, Mankato
  • James Luke Inman, age 30, Mankato
  • Skylar Jo Reichel-Schneider, age 20, Mankato
  • 15-year-old juvenile male, Mankato

The adults are being held in the local jail and the juvenile is being held in the Carver County juvenile detention center.
