Miscellaneous – Justice | Avignon: the buyer in an irregular situation, the seller arrested near ammunition
It was while monitoring a deal point in the rue de l’Abbé-Requin that Avignon police officers spotted the merry-go-round of an individual, going back and forth to sell narcotics, this Friday, towards 3:30 p.m. They then begin to challenge the last buyer while the seller flees and takes refuge in a squatted apartment in a neighboring building.
The police are busy opening the door, arresting the individual and discovering ammunition during the search of the premises. In this case, 33 short cartridges of 9 millimeters. Both taken to the police station, the two men quickly recognized the facts. The buyer explained that he had come to obtain cannabis resin for his personal consumption. In an irregular situation and already subject to an obligation to leave French territory, he was taken to the administrative detention center in Nîmes.
The seller, a 32-year-old man from Avignon, who had been caught with 8 g of cocaine, 25 g of resin and €300 in cash, did not deny the sale of narcotics but declared that the ammunition found was not not to him. He received a summons to appear before the criminal court for March.
