Drug Gang was supplied in Albania, 17 arrested in Italy


 Italian police have successfully completed an outbreak operation in the Bari area of Lecce, between criminal gangs in Puglia and active clans in Albania, by arresting 17 people and seized 700 kg of marijuana.

The investigation called "Drug Boat" sentenced 15 people to prison and 5 others in house arrest, as they are accused of: possession and trafficking of narcotics in aggravating circumstances, cooperation with the mafia as well as possession of joint ammunition war.

During the investigation that lasted nearly two years, the criminal group was allowed to extend its full activity and operation, as well as the structure of the "Velluto" clan, while Domenico Velluto (among the detainees) was at his head.
