Police break up drug smuggling ring

In cooperation with their German colleagues, the Czech police and customs have arrested four men suspected of smuggling illicit drugs from the Czech Republic to Germany, a spokesman for the Czech customs said on Friday. The officers also confiscated marihuana and crystal meth worth around seven million crowns, and hundreds of thousands of crowns in cash. The police believe the men were in charge of an extensive drug smuggling network with links to Vietnam. If convicted, the men could face up to 18 years in prison.
