In the last few days, a mysterious case in Crete concerning the arrest of two young men from Turkey has come under the microscope of a police investigation.

According to Proto Thema, the two arrested, 22 and 27 years old, came to Greece last September and, from the first moment, their arrival aroused the interest of the authorities. As a result, they were put under surveillance by state agencies that wanted to ascertain the exact reason they chose to come to Greece.

After conducting an investigation, police officers of the Security Sub-Directorate of Chania in Crete raided a villa that the two men had rented in Tersanas at noon last Monday and arrested them without more information being released about their actions.

Inside the luxurious villa, police found a 9mm pistol, as well as 15 cartridges of the same calibre, while a small amount of narcotic substance (tetrahydrocannabinol) was seized.

A case file was made against the two men for violation of the law on weapons and drugs, and they were taken to court. The police also seized other evidence from the house being investigated.

In addition, a luxury car used by the arrested persons, whose legality of possession and the authenticity of the traffic data are being investigated, was immobilised.
