KRIPOS has indicted 15 men and women for the purchase and sale of drugs on the internet. Hundreds of Norwegians reportedly bought drugs from the network, according to the newspaper VG.

There are five men among those arrested who are regarded as some of the main people behind the network.

Three of them are charged under the so-called mafia section, because the police believes that they have been involved in organized drug crime. Many of the accused are not previously known to the police.

In the network there have been traded cannabis, cocaine, amphetamines and MDMA for millions of kroner. The drugs have been sent to people via their postal addresses.
