Five arrests and more than 21,000 joints seized

Den Hoorn – On Wednesday, March 15, five people were arrested in a business premises on Kleijweg for producing joints on a large scale. Thousands of joints, all kinds of means to produce them and cash were also seized.

When the police entered the room in a multi-company building, five people were busy producing joints. These are three women and two men. They have been arrested for violating the Opium Act. The suspects will appear in court at a later date.

The room contained equipment with which joints could be produced on a large scale. Furthermore, empty shells for joints, kilos of drugs to fill them with and cash were found. The room contained some 21,000 joints ready to be sold.

Subversion

The business premises came into the picture during inspections that are part of the approach to undermining on business parks in the municipality of Midden-Delfland. Subversion is a result of various forms of crime, in which the boundaries between ‘ordinary’ society and the underworld become blurred. The approach to this is organized in an integrated way, with the government working together with companies and citizens. The police make an important contribution to this, together with partners such as municipalities, the Environment Agency, the Tax and Customs Administration, the Fiscal Intelligence and Investigation Service (FIOD) and the Public Prosecution Service.

Mayor Van Hemmen of Midden-Delfland is proud of the result of the action on Kleijweg in Den Hoorn. ‘Undermining is concrete rot in society and unfortunately also occurs in Midden-Delfland. Thanks to intensive cooperation with the police and other partners, we have given the production and trade in drugs a serious blow today. I am proud of everyone who contributed to this success, which gives confidence in the further approach to subversion,” he says.
