Two Albanian nationals were arrested by Igoumenitsa police drug squad officers at dawn Wednesday in the Tsamanta region near the Greek border with Albania, and 94 kilos of hashish were seized, while a third Albanian was wanted.
The two detainees -- a man and a woman -- were arrested and their car was seized, while police were searching for the driver of a second car in which the narcotic was found.
The wanted man sped through a police blockade and abandoned his vehicle a short distance away, and fled on foot in the cover of the dark. A search of the car turned up the hashish in one-kilo packages stashed in travel satchels.
The man and women were arrested in another car serving as a look-out for the trafficker.
The detainees will be taken before a public prosecutor.
