(ADW) Luxembourg's Customs and Excise hit the jackpot during a large scale narcotics investigation launched last week.

Officers managed to seize more than 1.3kg of heroin, 12.4 grams of marijuana and 3.5 grams of hashish. They also confiscated seven mobile phones, four vehicles, and € 2,230.

With an estimated street value of EUR 13 000, the enormous profit margin for the drug traffickers was evident as the heroin alone had an estimated resale value of about € 60,000.

The drugs were bound for “customers” in Luxembourg and border areas of France and Belgium.

In all, eight people were arrested by order of the prosecutor.
