Five people connected to a Serbian drug network have been charged with organized smuggling and sale of drugs in Norway. More than NOK 10 million in cash has been seized.
The police believe the group has been selling large quantities of drugs in Oslo for a long time, according to Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).
At the end of August, the police carried out arrests after investigating the suspected perpetrators. A truck was stopped at a petrol station in Råde, where the police seized NOK 9.4 million.
According to the police, cocaine was stored in an apartment at Bjølsen in Oslo, while money was stored in an apartment at Grünerløkka. The police struck when they suspected that money was to be taken out of Norway.
An additional NOK 1 million was found in two apartments in Oslo, and 1.2 kilos of cocaine have been seized in the case. Police believe they can prove that this drug comes from an import of 26 kilos of cocaine at the end of March 2021.
The case is being investigated by the police section for organized crime in Oslo in cooperation with foreign police. Investigators believe the Serbs in Oslo have communicated with what the police suspect is an organizer in Serbia.
“There are many investigations we want to carry out in the accused’s home country, Serbia, and in other countries,” police attorney Jens Johannes Andenæs told NRK.
