October 14, 2018

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greek police say two policemen were involved in a drug trafficking ring that moved large amounts of cocaine, cannabis and other drugs.

Police said Saturday that a Friday operation in the Athens area and in the central Greek region of Thessaly netted nine suspects, including one police sergeant, an unspecified amount of drugs, five guns, a large amount of ammunition, 35,000 euros ($40,500) in cash, jewelry and cellphones.

Three of the arrested suspects are foreigners. Another foreign suspect is at large and a trooper, who obtained small amounts of drugs but was not known to have traded them, is under investigation.

Police say both policemen are alleged to have provided the other suspects with inside information and the sergeant also sold drugs to other people.
