Three people have been arrested in Innlandet Police District in connection with the international police operation Trojan Shield. A total of nine people have been arrested in Norway.
More than 800 people have been arrested in the operation, which has been described as one of the largest international police operations ever.
The operation is linked to an encrypted communication platform used by criminal networks.
The three people who were apprehended in the Innlandet Police District were arrested on May 27.
New arrests possible
“Three people are charged with aggravated drug dealing, and they have been remanded in custody due to the risk of evidence being lost. For the sake of the investigation, we can’t comment further at this time,” prosecuting investigation leader Mari Lauritzen Hasle noted.
Initially, Kripos reported that seven people had been arrested in Norway. On Wednesday, police lawyer Morten Stene in Kripos told newspaper VG that a total of nine people have now been arrested in Norway in multiple districts.
The police do not rule out that there may be more arrests related to the case in the future.
