Authorities in Bavaria took down a group accused of selling large quantities of drugs purchased on the darkweb.
The Bavarian State Criminal Police Office, in cooperation with the Criminal Police Station (KPS) Garmisch-Partenkirchen, arrested four men aged 35, 30, 24, and 27 for allegedly running a drug trafficking operation from their houses.
The investigations that led to the suspects' arrest began in early February after the investigators intercepted a suspicious package addressed to the 35-year-old suspect. The investigators found 10 kilograms of amphetamine in the package. The investigators made a controlled delivery of the drugs to the suspect’s home.
After delivering the package the investigators continued to monitor the suspect’s activities in order to identify other suspects involved in the drug trafficking operation. The investigators subsequently identified three more suspects: two Germans aged 30 and 24 and a 27-year-old Greek.
The investigators then acquired and executed arrest warrants for the suspects. The suspects' arrests were followed by searches at their residences. The searches resulted in the seizure of one kilogram of amphetamine, 20,000 euros in cash, and an undisclosed number of gold and silver bars.
