On 7th August 2014 GNR Loulé arrested a citizen aged 34 years old, for drug trafficking, and seized more than 3900 individual doses of heroin.

During an anti-drug operation the arrested person, who was from the metropolitan area of Lisbon, was stopped in his car on the Estrada Nacional, Quarteira.

When the GNR approached the vehicle the occupant became nervous. The vehicle was searched and three small packages containing the drugs were found in the back seat of the vehicle. In addition two mobile phones and 187 euros in cash were seized.

The detainee has a criminal record for drug trafficking, arms trafficking and theft and tampering of vehicles, among other crimes and will appear at the Judicial District Court of Loulé for determination of remand/reporting conditions.
