Police have arrested twenty six people and seized twelve cars along with tens of thousands of euros after dismantling a drug gang operating out of a Brussels municipality for decades, law enforcement authorities announced Thursday.
The dismantlement was a portion of a major drug operation between Belgian and global authorities, who’d managed to follow a family-operated drug gang operating out of the municipality of Anderlecht and importing cannabis from Spain and Morocco to France and Belgium for ages ago
Police carried out the arrests on June 27 after approximately 200 agents carried out thirty different house raids and detained a total of 21 people, one of which they said will be the main members of the gang.
Since the arrests, 11 individuals are charged and four of them stay in preventive detention, Denis Goeman, spokesperson with Brussels public prosecutor told La Dernière Heure.
Several kilos of cannabis, $65,000 euro, three guns and around twelve cars were seized throughout the surgeries, in accordance with the spokesperson.
The operation was a portion of this”world wide Drugs Plan,” by which associates of federal and local authorities units work together with public prosecutor offices to crackdown on criminal drug gangs active at the Brussels land.
