Fight against drug dealing in the outskirts of Rome. Police arrested 13 people. In particular, the investigators of the Porta Maggiore police station had for some time been suspecting a possible significant drug trafficking near an ‘ethnic’ convenience store located in the Rocca Cencia area. Given the logistical difficulties to approach the place discreetly, the police resorted to a sophisticated remote recognition system that made it possible to identify two Nigerians as drug dealers, who were then arrested. Instead, six pounds of heroin were seized in an apartment and two people were arrested. Three minors and a 50-year-old, however, were arrested in the territory of the VI Casilino District.
Not only. In the Fidene area, a 26-year-old boy was surprised by officers with 12 doses of cocaine in the car. And again, the agents of the IX Exposition District arrested a 39-year-old Romanian in the Ardeatina neighborhood: the man was found in possession of a dose of cocaine during a check, and then, by searching the car, another five grams of the same were found substance. At home, however, just under two thousand euros and the material for the packaging of the drug were found. The man was also investigated for driving without a license. Over 350 grams of marijuana and 1,200 euros were seized by investigators from the Romanina police station from a 32-year-old stopped near the parking lot of a Tor Tre Teste supermarket.
