Police in Larissa, central Greece, have detained two men aged 43 and 83 on suspicion of selling phoney drugs to cancer sufferers. According to investigators, the 43-year-old would approach cancer patients and convince them his accomplice manufactured a cure.
A policeman posing as patient met with the 43-year-old and paid him 3,000 euros for what was ostensibly the first dose of treatment.
The officer then went to the 83-year-old’s home to pick up the rest of his “treatment.”
Searches following the arrests turned up glass and plastic vials containing unidentified powders and liquids as well as assorted drugs.
