Drug smugglers caught with big cocaine stash
Three men were arrested in Athens yesterday after police raided a home in the southern suburb of Voula and seized 230 kilos of cocaine.
Police said that one of those arrested is a Greek man from Kalamata. The other two suspects are foreign nationals: a Colombian-born Canadian citizen and a man from Mexico. They are alleged to be members of an international drug smuggling ring.
The drugs squad operation was carried out after cooperation between Greece’s Financial Crimes Squad (SDOE) and the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).
