There Guardia di Finanza of Venice seized a large amount of drugs, including hashish, cocaine and marijuana, from two Albanian spouses, domiciled in Mestre, who were arrested.
A patrol of the green berets of the Pronto Employment Company of the lagoon capital, during the checks against the shop in the Mestre area, was attracted to a car that had just entered the carriageway and which, at the sight of the military, had tried to reverse the direction of travel. The vehicle was blocked and the couple were taken to their neighboring home; in the parking lot another car of the spouses was found, in whose trunk were found sticks of hashish for almost 20 kilograms. The man then attempted to escape but was blocked by the patrol.
With the drug dog, the operations were extended to the home, where 300 grams of cocaine were discovered hidden in the suction pipe of the kitchen, documents and materials for the packaging of the drug. In another building of the couple, a few kilometers away, more than 3 kilos of cocaine were discovered in a closet, 18 sacks with 20 kilos of marijuana and 27 kilos of hashish divided into 55 sticks.
The drug, probably destined to supply the drugstore squares during the summer season, would have yielded on the market a profit estimated at over one million euros. The two were arrested and taken to the prison in Venice.
