Authorities intercept 65 kilos cannabis from Albania

The Igoumenitsa drugs squad on Sunday intercepted a load of 65 kilos of cannabis sent from neighbouring Albania, in an arrest at Sagiada in Thesprotia.
Unlike similar arrests made in the past, the driver of this load was a 55-year-old Egyptian that had been sent by a drug-dealing ring in Athens.

After pulling over the car he was driving, police discovered 65 packages hidden in the interior, containing a total of 65 kilos cannabis.

The Egyptian was arrested and led before an Igoumenitsa public prosecutor, while police have launched an investigation to locate his accomplices.
