Link sought in drug busts

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Ju­di­cial author­i­ties are be­ing tasked with find­ing an ev­i­den­tiary link be­tween two ma­jor drug seizures over the past few days af­ter a lo­cal po­lice sta­tion or­dered a raid with­out alert­ing the cen­tral drug agency in Athens, pos­si­bly com­pro­mis­ing months of in­ves­ti­ga­tions.

Kathimerini un­der­stands that the raid on a large il­le­gal hy­dro­ponic cannabis plantation in Naf­plio last week forced the cen­tral drug agency to pro­ceed with the ar­rest of three Greeks sus­pected of run­ning the op­er­a­tion but against whom the in­ves­ti­ga­tion was in­com­plete. It is also said to have prompted the Financial Crimes Squad to push up a raid on an­other il­le­gal plantation, in Fthi­otida, where 1,680 plants were seized.
