Hashish and Antiquities Trafficked by Greek Gang

Antiquities and metal detectors have been found in raid on a drug gang in Greece which suggests the connection between the dealing in both illicit commodities (Philip Chrysopoulos. 'Greek Police Dismantle Drug Ring Including 3 Army Officers', Greek Reporter Jun 14, 2016)
The Hellenic Police has dismantled a 32-person drug ring that includes three low-rank army officers, a fire department contract employee and a policeman [...] the arrests were made in Alexandroupolis, Orestiada, Thessaloniki, Veria, Edessa, Skydra, Mykonos and Santorini [...]. The four leaders of the group had set up the criminal organization in Thrace, gradually enrolling members. The ring expanded to Eastern and Central Macedonia and the Cyclades islands, operating through a network of bars and clubs. [...] Police searched the homes, offices and vehicles of those arrested [...]  Among the findings were also 76 ancient coins and 38 metal and stone antiquities, leading police to believe that the ring was also involved in illicit antiquities trade. Police are continuing the investigation to discover the whole scope of activities of the criminal ring.
Watch out dealers, they may be coming after you and your clients.
