A drug trafficking ring made up of Albanians from Albania and Kosovo has been destroyed by Vienna police. During the operation, 24 people were arrested while at least 200 thousand euros were seized.
Investigations have shown that detainees between the ages of 18 and 48 were involved in drug trafficking. They operated in the districts of Vienna, Landstrasse, Margareten, Favoriten, Simmering, Meidling, Penzing and Brigittenau.
They sold narcotics in cafes, sometimes on the street or in cars, while deals were made in vehicles.
In a large hall in an apartment in Austria they had cultivated a large amount of cannabis. During the search, police discovered 2,000 plants that, if “harvested”, would have produced at least 80 kg of drugs.
The Blues also seized three vehicles used by the drug trafficking network to deliver “customer” messages. / abcnews
