Eight people, including two teachers, have been arrested in Romania on charges of selling drugs, reports Agerpress agency, quoted by BTA.
The suspects were remanded in custody for 30 days following a search on September 26 as part of an investigation led by the Organized Crime and Terrorism Directorate.
Police officers and prosecutors searched 26 addresses in Buzău, Vranca, Braila and Teleorman counties. Money, drugs and several scales were seized. A measure of judicial control was imposed on five other suspects.
According to the prosecutor’s office, the persons under investigation are part of an organized criminal network for drug trafficking. There are two people in the group who worked as substitute teachers. According to the indictment, the suspects used an encrypted online application from which they purchased cannabis and other drugs. The payment was made through cryptocurrency, and the place of receipt of the goods was communicated to the buyers through GPS coordinates, judicial sources told Agerpress.
