Authorities Apprehend Two People for Allegedly Selling Drugs to Migrants at Lesvos’ Moria Camp

Authorities reported on Friday that coast guards on the Greek island of Lesvos apprehended a municipal employee and his partner early Thursday under the allegations that they were selling drugs to migrants at the Moria refugee camp.

The two individuals came to the attention of the authorities after migrants complained about the couple dealing drugs at the Moria camp. Sources reported that authorities found around 300 grams on cannabis when they searched the couple. The raid on their home also revealed 885 euros in can and a set of precision scales, commonly used to weigh drugs.

There was no further information available at this time as to what charges the couple will face or any further information about the individuals involved.
