Serbia police smash suspected drug ring
by UPI

BELGRADE, Serbia -- Serbian police Thursday said they broke up an international drug ring that reportedly smuggled drugs to six European countries for several years.

A Belgrade police official said officers confiscated drugs with a street value of more than $1.5 million from five suspects, including a former Serbian state security officer, the Serbian news agency Beta reported.

In raids on apartments in Belgrade this week, police seized 106 pounds of heroin and 9 pounds of cocaine, two handguns, forged documents and $310,000 in cash.

The five men were detained on suspicion they had been producing and smuggling drugs in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Macedonia, Serbia and Switzerland.

An investigating judge of a Belgrade district court was handling the case and Serbian police continued efforts to discover other members of the drug trafficking ring.
