Two Albanian nationals, a mother, 62, and her son, 30, were arrested in Athens’ Haidari district accused of drug trafficking, authorities announced on Friday.
The two suspects had turned their house into a drug cutting and packaging lab. In this, police found and seized 7,606 grams of heroin, 16,160 grams of an unidentified powder possibly used as an adulterant, roughly 15,000 euros of drug money, precision scales and a hydraulic press used in drug packaging.
In a separate incident, two Iranians, 28 and 31, were arrested in Athens and accused of smuggling methamphetamine into Greece through the post. They were arrested when they received a methamphetamine package that had originated from Turkey.
Police seized roughly a kilo of the drug, a precision scale and forged asylum request application forms.
