Around 06:00 a report came in of possible drug waste on the Witteweg in Made. At the scene, officers found seven barrels with a liquid. An hour later, a second report of drug waste came in, this one was on Hoevenseweg in Hooge Zwaluwe. At this location, about 6 kilometers from the first site, agents found fifteen barrels with a liquid.
The fire service has carried out measurements at both locations. This shows that it is probably drug waste, used to process drugs. The measurements also show that there is little or no pollution for the water. The barrels have been cleaned up by specialist services.
Officers investigated the scene, but no one has been arrested. Police are looking for witnesses who may have witnessed the dumping.
