 At least three people have been arrested in North Macedonia in connection with the seizure of 1.3 tonnes of cocaine. According to local media, 2 drivers and 1 storekeeper were working in the fruit store where the drugs were found.

Meanwhile, the operation continues in the village of Krushopek in Saraj, where a fruit store was discovered, in which was hidden the cocaine.

That the amount of the drugs was hidden in a banana truck, which arrived at the Hani Hoti Customs Office in Montenegro yesterday and went out of Albania through Qafë Thana, Macedonia.

The final destination of the narcotics has been to Slovenia. Albanian authorities had the truck under surveillance as they had information about the truck and allowed it to cross into Albania in coordination with all international authorities involved in the operation.

The action was attended by the US DEA, Guardia di Finanza, Albanian Police, and other neighboring authorities.

The truck with cocaine was allowed to leave Albania, as they had to find out where it was going, and who was hiding behind this record of cocaine load.

According to preliminary information, it has been learned that the drug was allowed with the consent of the US DEA, Guardia di Finanza, and SPAK in Albania.

During the crossing into the Albanian territory, the transport of narcotics was under police surveillance.

Leader of Special Structure Against Corruption and Organized Crime Arben Kraja reacted to media regarding the 1.3 tonnes of cocaine seized in North Macedonia today.

In a statement to local media, Kraja stated that the narcotic substance is not related to Albania, It was just transit in our country.

“We had it under control. It's just transit. It has nothing to do with us,” Kraja said.

Police action is still ongoing, with Macedonian authorities suggesting the details will be made public tomorrow.
