(JB) A police officer has been suspended following an investigation into drug use.

The suspension comes after an operation by detectives in Grevenmacher into recreational drug use.

In total four suspects were arrested and are awaiting trial. Among them was an unnamed police officer.

The officer's suspension comes just weeks after another officer from the Police Grand Ducale was arrested on suspicion of drink driving and seriously injuring a Spanish national.

The 26-year-old had allegedly left a club and was en route to work on June 29 when it is claimed he lost control of his vehicle and collided with two pedestrians at Place de Metz. The investigation is ongoing.
