Suspect arrested for involvement in chemical waste

Ooltgensplaat – A 54-year-old resident of Ooltgensplaat was arrested early this morning in his home. He is suspected of involvement in presumably a drug lab and thefts.

In response to information received, agents conducted an investigation this morning around 4:30 am in a warehouse on the Spuidijk. During this investigation, 4000 liters of chemical waste, a stolen dirt bike and a stolen old-timer were found. The chemical waste has been destroyed. The motorcycle and car have been secured for further investigation.

How do I recognize drug dumping

  • Drug waste is often contained in plastic drums, such as large barrels or jerry cans. It can also sometimes be contained in metal drums or gas cylinders.
  • For example, criminals dump the waste along the road, in a forest or in an open field. Sometimes the chemical waste is in a burnt-out car.
  • Vehicles in a non-obvious place in the woods or outlying area (for example on a dead end road), people who look around skittishly and leave at high speed.
  • Illegal drug dumping often takes place in the dark.
  • It often concerns large quantities that are transported by vans or small trucks.
  • Drug waste is dirty and dangerous stuff, the criminals often wear gloves when dumping it.

Do you see an illegal dumping? Then call 112
If you witness an illegal dumping, call the police on 112. Make sure your own safety comes first. If possible, take photos, write down number plates and describe the means of transport and the people. You can also report this via Meld Misdaad Anoniem on 0800-7000.

What do you do if you see something that looks like drug dumping?
Illegal dumping often takes place in the dark. It often concerns larger quantities that are transported by delivery vans or sometimes small trucks. Be alert if you see a car in a non-obvious place in the woods or outlying area (dead end road). Write down the number plate and call the police in connection with a suspicious situation (not an emergency, so 0900-8844). If you are the owner of the land where the waste is located, you should also file an official report with the police. If the perpetrator is known, the damage can be recovered and must pay back the damage. Without a report, there is no legal victim.
