Eight people have been indicted as part of a judicial investigation opened in Aix-en-Provence on a narcotics network with links to Salon-de-Provence but also Marseille cities, we learned on Tuesday with the gendarmerie of Bouches-du-Rhône.

The investigations began after the discovery, at the end of February in Velaux, of a large quantity of narcotics in an Airbnb rental.

A surveillance device put in place allowed the arrest of a woman who presented herself in the accommodation, then of the official tenant of the accommodation.

Both were indicted and placed under judicial supervision.

The Salon-de-Provence research brigade continued the investigation, which led to the identification of eight protagonists involved in the network.

Nearly 6 kg of cocaine and 6 kg of resin and herbal cannabis were seized, for an estimated value of more than 200,000 euros.

At the end of the police custody, the eight people were indicted.
