Two Athens drug racket suspects arrested


A police operation to crack down on a gang believed to be dealing drugs in the northeastern suburbs of Athens has so far netted two male suspects, aged 52 and 65.

According to an announcement on Wednesday, officers acting on a tip-off caught the 65-year-old in Vrilissia as he was supplying heroin to the second suspect.

A search of the older man’s home turned up more drugs, 16,000 euros in cash and a revolver.
