Police have seized 96 kilos of amphetamine in an international preliminary investigation, which is suspected of being on its way from the Netherlands to Finland, the Central Criminal Police informs.
The seizure was made in the municipality of Nieuweschans near the German border in early March this year. Authorities stopped the car carrying the drugs and arrested the people in the car.
A considerable amount of ammunition ended up in the hands of the police.
The preliminary investigation carried out in Finland is part of the Dutch authorities' extensive Vidar operation, which investigated the import of amphetamine by the criminal organization Helvet's angels into Great Britain and Finland, among others.
In the Netherlands, a number of people are suspected of crimes, some of whom belong to the hellish angel or Red Devils criminal organizations.
