According to reports, the four arrests were made by officers from a joint investigation group involving the Central Office of Cybercrime and the Federal Customs Administration. The arrests were made after officials raided 6 different properties in Eastern Bavaria a couple of weeks ago.
Among the things seized during the arrests included 11 kilograms of amphetamine, 1425 ecstasy pills, 645 grams of marijuana, 250 grams of heroin, 175 grams of MDMA and 150 grams of cocaine.
