A 40-year-old from Palermo, a familiar face to the police, was arrested by the carabinieri of the Centro station for detention for the purpose of drug dealing. The man was framed during a drug service carried out in the heart of the Chief. “The soldiers of the Arma – explain from the provincial command – have noticed the 40-year-old wandering cautiously through the alleys of the market and hastily enter an old warehouse in Via Sant’Agostino”.
The search in his warehouse, carried out with the decisive contribution of an anti-drug dog, made it possible to recover over 300 grams of hashish, already divided into doses, different packaging materials and 170 euros deemed to be the result of the illegal trading activity.
The drug was seized: if placed on the retail market it would have yielded over 3,000 euros. Now it will be taken to the laboratory for drugs analysis of the provincial command for the necessary checks. The arrested person, on the instructions of the public prosecutor, was taken to his home, awaiting the validation hearing, and is now under house arrest.
