Cocaine: coming from South America, the drug watered the Toulouse region thanks to a well-oiled system
The anti-narcotics office of the Toulouse PJ has just arrested, after a long hunt, 5 people including a network head specializing in coke.
Coming from South America, the drug passed through Paris before spraying the Toulouse region. The anti-narcotics office (Ofast) of the territorial direction of the judicial police of Toulouse has just dismantled a network of traffickers. At its head, a man in his thirties, already inferred known, conductor of a well-oiled system. It was thanks to information gleaned at the start of the year that the police began to track down the traffickers.
By means of surveillance and other spinning, they have unraveled the threads and understand how the juicy affair worked. The man was using mules, that is, people carrying drugs.
The latter went by plane to Paris where they recovered the goods. In order to be more discreet and to avoid possible customs checks, they went back down to Toulouse by train where they were immediately received at the Matabiau station.
At the beginning of last week, the police officers of Ofast took action, in flagrante delicto. Nice catch. Two kilos of cannabis as well as €50,000 from trafficking. The drug was intended for the Toulouse market, but not only. The network head dispatched the product to customers throughout the region.
A total of five people were arrested. Three, last week, who were presented to an examining magistrate, and imprisoned. Two other suspects were arrested earlier this week and transferred on Wednesday. The traffic, which lasted for many months, would have made it possible to transport tens of kilos of cocaine in the region.
The trips were made at a steady pace.
