Suspected KingPin of Narcotics Gang Nabbed by German Police

German police have apprehended in Dusseldorf a suspected leader of a narcotics gang thought to be behind a major cocaine haul in Albania earlier this year.

The 48-year-old Albanian national is accused of smuggling over 600 kilogrammes of cocaine from Colombia to Albania in February, Germany Federal Criminal Police Office said on Friday in Dusseldorf. The suspect was said to have imported the drugs, using one of the companies he ran. Police in Albania had estimated the street value of the cocaine at 220 million dollars.

Though Albania had issued a warrant for the man’s extradition, German authorities have yet to issue a statement on the warrant. Located in the South-western Balkans and with access to the Adriatic Sea across Italy, Albania straddles one of the most important routes for smugglers of drugs, weapons and people, NAN reports.
