konstanz - The German authorities arrested fifteen suspects in a major action against organized crime. The police collapsed in several cities in the state of Baden-Württemberg. Agents took on drugs, firearms and hundreds of thousands of euros in cash.
According to the Public Prosecutor, the suspects are suspected of inter alia involvement in organized drug crime, heavy abuse, attempted murder and extortion. The arrests coincided with a similar action in Italy, where two people were arrested.
The authorities in the state have been investigating the alleged drug gang for more than a year. In addition, Italians discovered that were likely to have ties with the mafia in their home country. Therefore, the Italian authorities were also involved in the investigation.
