The police were called to intervene at Parc Provence in an attempt to break into an apartment. The occupant was arrested and taken into police custody.
A man was arrested and taken into custody this Friday morning in Marseille, suspected of being the “food” (place of storage) of a drug trafficking network. Aged 30 and already known to the police for having served 18 months in prison, the man was arrested at Parc Provence, avenue de Saint-Barnabé in the 12th arrondissement, in turbulent circumstances.
At around 8:30 am, the police were called to intervene at Parc Provence when a man entrenched in his home tried to oppose an attempted intrusion by half a dozen individuals. The individual used a firearm on several occasions.
Cocaine, handgun and cutting equipment
The police arrive on site and manage to get in touch with the madman. Frightened, agitated, he explained that he had been the victim of an attempted intrusion by five individuals and that he fired to defend himself.
At the request of the police, he will then send his revolver in a sock and then his identity papers, the man cooperates normally and even sends his keys through the window to the police. In addition, the agents discover a white package at the foot of the building, a package which the respondent will admit to being the owner.
Questioned by the police, the man explains that he acts as a “nurse” for a drug trafficking network. After entering the apartment, despite the door in poor condition, the police discovered ten kilos of cocaine packaged in pain, a handgun, ammunition, a blender, and cutting equipment. Cartridges and bullet holes are also noted. The Marseille judicial police were seized of the investigation.
