The Hungarian police have also found drugs in the car of the two Dutchmen who were arrested at the Sziget festival on suspicion of drug trafficking. Almost 17 kilos of drugs have been found in their vehicle.
The men aged 21 and 22 were caught at the festival last week. Then 451 bottles of narcotic drugs, 128 grams of marijuana and nearly 2,700 ecstasy pills were seized. These resources were in their tent and a luggage locker.
The police report Tuesday that they have again found drugs, this time in the vehicle of the suspects. The officers tracked the vehicle after they found a car key.
The suspects did not want to tell where the car was parked, but the police managed to locate the Volkswagen Caddy. The car was located elsewhere in Budapest, the place where Sziget is held every year.
Various Dutch media report on the basis of sources within the athletics world that one of the two suspects is the Groningen sprinter Roelf B.. The Athletics Association says it has "investigated" the matter, but does not comment further.
