Three Albanian nationals collected 40 kilos of hashish in their car at the Greek-Albanian borders, with the city of Patra as their destination.
Shadowed by police, who had been informed of their activities, they tried to speed away in the region of Anatoli when police tried to stop them. On the Ioannina-Athens motorway, the Albanians fired on police and an exhange of fire followed. Police patrol cars and motorcycles blocked all the roads and at some point the Albanians abandoned the car and tried to run away. One of the car's occupants was arrested while the other two are being sought.The drugs and the car were confiscated.
