Signals

The police in Groningen tackled drug trafficking, which often involves (online) drug delivery services, such as Telegram or SnapChat. The police and the Public Prosecution Service have therefore decided to take action to arrest several drug couriers in one evening. The police tracked down the couriers through online research and reports.

This led to the arrest of a 15-year-old boy and 6 men aged 31, 30, 24, 24, 23 and 19 years old, all from Groningen.

During the arrests, quantities of hard drugs were found on the people, the police reported on Friday.
