A joint raid coded “Mega’, conducted on Sunday by the State Police, Delta Force and Guardia di Finanzia prevented the smuggling to Italy of a record quantity of 1.3 ton of Cannabis Sativa. The large quantity of narcotics was sequestrated in Bristan Bay of Karaburun peninsula.
Some 47 bags filled with narcotics and hidden in three different places were found during this police raid that was based on confidential information. Bad weather conditions and rough sea delayed the narcotics smuggling giving a chance to the police forces to successfully conclude this raid.
Police raid is still ongoing through a large scale inspection from the land and the sea aiming the identification and capture of those involved in this narcotics smuggling attempt.
