Greek police bust huge cocaine dealing ring


Greek police have dismantled a drug dealing ring that imported and distributed huge quantities of cocaine around Greece.

A 43-year old foreign national and two locals were arrested in Nea Halkidona, Athens on Saturday afternoon who had hidden twenty packages containing a total of 16kg of cocaine in a car.

The investigation led police to discover that the foreign national was one of the heads of a criminal organisation that imported cocaine and gave it two Greeks, both members of the gang to sell it.

In the suspects’ possession police also found and confiscated 1,620 euros cash, three mobile phones and a car.
