Suspected drug dealers arrested in Vale Judeu

TWO CAPE Verdian men were recently arrested in the Vale Judeu area of Loulé, on suspicion of drug dealing and for possession of an unlicensed firearm.

The men, who are both around 40-years-of-age, were placed under close surveillance after their movements appeared to link them to drug trafficking. After raiding their home, Loulé GNR confiscated an unlicensed firearm, mobile phones, 2,000 doses of cocaine, 351 doses of heroin and 2,400 euros in cash. The pair are due to appear at Loulé Court for a first hearing.
