Police sergeant caught with heroin in hand


A police sergeant on the island of Chios was arrested on Saturday on drug dealing charges.

The suspect was reportedly nabbed by officers of the Chios narcotics unit as he handed over 50 grams of heroin to an unidentified individual.

Investigators are examining whether the sergeant, who worked in the department overseeing the transfer of prison inmates, had committed similar offenses in the past. He is to appear before a local prosecutor later on Saturday.
