Major Cocaine Bust by Greek Police Narcotics Unit

greek-police A criminal gang importing large quantities of cocaine into Greece has been dismantled in an operation by the Greek police narcotics unit on Tuesday. Four gang members have been arrested in Athens – three Albanian nationals and one Greek – while two more Albanian nationals are being sought.
Police arrested two Albanian men aged 32 and 34, a 27-year-old Albanian woman and a 52-year-old Greek in Athens. Criminal charges were drawn up against them for forming and participating in a criminal organization as well as for violating laws on weapons and drugs.
The arrests were the result of a police investigation after reports that the gang was importing drugs from cocaine-producing countries.
According to investigation findings, the gang members had a specific action plan and discrete roles with respect to contacting suppliers, cutting the drugs, as well as the transport, concealment and distribution of the cocaine, which was done in a car with a specially adapted storage area.
During raids on houses, premises and vehicles, police found and confiscated 3,387 kilos of cocaine, smaller quantities of cannabis, an unidentified powder for cutting the drugs, 43,600 euros, a gun, three cars, 10 mobile phones and one set of electronic scales. The suspects were led before an Athens prosecutor and referred to an examining judge.
