Swedish suspected drug teller arrested in Denmark
A Swedish man aged 60 has been arrested in Denmark on suspicion of handling and exchanging money in a network suspected of smuggling in and selling 1.6 tonnes of heroin and cocaine in Sweden and Denmark.
The man was recently arrested in Malmö and voluntarily extradited to Denmark. At the detention hearing in Copenhagen on Saturday, the man refused a crime.
In total, there are now 20 people arrested in Denmark on suspicion of involvement in the drug network. In addition, four persons are detained in the case in Sweden, the Netherlands and Germany, which the Danish authorities have requested extradition.
At the end of June, some 30 people were arrested in a coordinated European police operation against the smuggling league. The league is suspected of smuggling drugs into custom-built maple compartments in a Swedish-registered car.
