Drug dealers caught outside downtown Athens university


Two foreign nationals, aged 27 and 31, who were arrested outside the Athens University of Economics and Business on Saturday in possession of a range of narcotics, were to face an Athens prosecutor on Wednesday on drug dealing charges.

Officers seized from the suspects 10 grams of heroin, 2 grams of crystal methamphetamine, 3.5 grams of cannabis and dozens of pills.

The arrests came as part of the government’s broader efforts to crack down on crime in central Athens.
