The “Dark HunTOR” campaign organized by EUROPOL took place in a total of nine countries – including the USA. More than 26 million euros were confiscated, the European police authority announced on Tuesday in The Hague. A total of 234 kilograms of various drugs and 45 firearms were also seized. Some of the suspects are classified as “high level targets” by Europol.
The drugs seized included 152 kilograms of amphetamines, 27 kilograms of opiates and over 25,000 ecstasy pills. In the course of the campaign, Italy closed two illegal online marketplaces with a total of more than 100,000 offers of illegal goods. As a result, according to Europol, a wealth of evidence was collected and made available to investigators around the world. Investigations are still ongoing in several countries, Europol said.
