Nine drug-peddlers, arrested in the capital

Nine drug-peddlers were arrested in the Capital, following a raid by Anti-Organised Crime Brigade officers, according to Antena 3. The action was staged in collaboration with the Gendarmerie, and law enforcers seized three kilos of heroin from the traffickers’ homes. The raid targeted the homes of five of the traffickers. The latter would bring the drugs in from Bulgaria and then distribute them in Bucharest and in neighbouring areas.

Following house searches, the police found three kilos of heroin, over 80 counterfeit cigarette cartons, as well as over EUR 2,000. The peddlers are under investigation for the possession and dealing of high-risk drugs and the forming of an organised crime group.
