Greek police have reported the arrest of a Serbian man suspected of being involved in an international smuggling ring importing drugs from South America to Europe, after seizing 136 kilograms of cocaine from his Varkiza apartment in Athens.

Police said the 33-year-old man, who wasn't named, was arrested on Saturday and charged with felony drug offenses, while authorities were also seeking a 35-year-old Serbian man believed to be an accomplice. Police estimated the drug ring's profits were in excess of 15 million euros based on the quantity of drugs seized and the amount already trafficked.

The drugs were seized during a raid on the luxury apartment in the elite southern seaside suburbs of Athens.
