Amersfoort – Ongoing police investigation into narcotics trafficking has led to the arrests of four people in Amersfoort on Tuesday, April 2. During searches of various homes in Amersfoort and Woudenberg, cocaine and bags containing money were seized.

An undermining action took place on Tuesday, April 2, 2024. During the action, the police saw that a bag was being transferred between two people. The recipient of this bag, a 41-year-old man from Belgium, was arrested. The bag contained a large amount of money. The deliverer of the bag, a 29-year-old man from Amersfoort, was followed to a house also in Amersfoort. This man was arrested when he left the house. Another 29-year-old man from Woudenberg, who left the same home, was also arrested. The police found a large amount of cocaine and bags with money on him.

Following the arrests, three homes were searched: two homes in Amersfoort and one home in Woudenberg. In one of the homes in Amersfoort, the police found, among other things, a money counting machine and packaging material. A large amount of adulterant was discovered in the other home in Amersfoort and a large amount of cocaine in a passenger car. The owner of the car, a 27-year-old woman from Amersfoort, was also arrested.

What is subversion?
Criminals use the outside world to carry out their illegal activities – such as drug trafficking and money laundering. Legal services and facilities such as transport, storage, finance and communication tools are used to carry out crime. Due to this mixing between the underworld and the upper world, local residents and entrepreneurs come into contact with undermining crime. As a result, they run the risk of becoming victims of nuisance in the neighborhood, drug dumping in nature, intimidation, extortion and violence, and (young) local residents are recruited for drug trafficking. Subversion affects our society and endangers the safety of society.
