On Wednesday February 23, around 5 p.m., intrigued by the sagging effect at the level of its rear axle, the customs officers of the Vallard brigade proceeded to inspect a car parked on the rest area of Valleiry, on the A40. They had flair. The presence of a large sports bag in the back seat and the strong smell of cannabis emerge from the passenger compartment at the end to convince them.
Coming from Troyes, bound for Annemasse
Located in the catering area of the service station, the owner is checked and brought back to the vehicle. The 23-year-old man, alone on board, explains that he comes from Troyes and that he is joining Annemasse. And his car is well “loaded.” »
In the trunk of the gray city car, three large suitcases filled with neatly packaged cannabis resin loaves convert the space. In the large sports bag, more cannabis, packaged in sachets ready for sale and bearing the mention of a famous brand of chocolate spread. The customs officers take out the scales and the calculator. The cannabis resin weigh-in shows a total of 120 kilos, the largest seizure since the start of the year.
The driver was handed over by customs officers this Thursday, February 24 to the police officers of the Annecy Judicial Police and placed in custody at the police station as part of a judicial investigation opened for drug trafficking.
