Heroin seized

Police in Tavira have seized more than 450 doses of heroin and arrested two Portuguese men in connection with drug dealing in Santa Luzia.

An investigation by the local GNR, in conjunction with other regional entities held over several months, led to the arrests of the men aged 39 and 42 during the evening of March 10.

A third man of Brazilian nationality was also arrested for being in the country illegally. The two Portuguese men have been presented before a judge in Faro and will appear in court at a later date after further investigations into drug trafficking have been completed.
