A very young teenager has been running a thriving herbal cannabis trade in his bedroom, according to police. The 13-year-old is under criminal responsibility, say the investigators. The main culprit is said to be his father. He was reported at large. Both live in the Flachgau.
Witnesses have reported to the police that the young man from Salzburg improves his pocket money with this line of business. The public prosecutor then ordered a house search. Two witnesses are said to incriminate the minor. They said they bought drugs from him. At each meeting, the 13-year-old had a large amount of cannabis herb available.
Father also targeted by the police
According to investigators, the boy could have received the drugs from his father. During the house search, the police found around 90 grams of herbal cannabis, a large precision scale and “countless objects related to narcotics”, as the official report states. We are talking about used “bongs” and several “grinders” (cannabis mills).

A police sniffer dog discovered almost a kilogram of cannabis herb and corresponding utensils in the father’s garden shed. The quality of the drugs is “very good,” according to investigators. In addition, glass tubes with residues of cocaine and a counterfeit drug from Russia, which is subject to the Medicines Act, were found.
Report to the youth welfare office
The man is now reported on the loose, his 13-year-old has no criminal consequences to fear because he is not of criminal age. In his case, however, the youth welfare office had been informed.
