Between 15 and 20 people are accused of participating in a drug network in the Haugesund area that smuggled in tablets and amphetamine from Eastern Europe.

In total, the police have seized over 10 kilos of amphetamines, around 50,000 pills, and over NOK 100,000 in cash, according to newspaper Haugesunds Avis.

The network is said to have a background in Poland and Lithuania, and the police believe they have supplied the district with drugs since 2016.

Six men in custody

The police in Lithuania are also involved in the case and are investigating it.

Six of the men are in custody, waiting to have their cases brought before the court.

The first will appear in Haugaland District Court as early as next week.
