Athens drug gang netted by police


Police said on Thursday they had unraveled a criminal gang that sold drugs in central Athens and western Attica and arrested four people.

In sweeps at Karaiskaki Square, Aghios Panteleimonas, Pangrati and Kypseli, police nabbed two Albanian nationals, 43 and 49, and two Greeks, both aged 57.

Reports said the 49-year-old Albanian suspect was the ringleader.

All four appeared before a prosecutor who ordered that they face an investigative magistrate.
