Police have arrested six people after a raid on a trailer park in Breda in connection with a major investigation into drugs-related crime. Several homes and business premises were also searched in the raids, which involved 250 police officers and other officials.

Police say they suspect the gang of setting up at least one drugs lab. The five men and one woman arrested were aged between 28 and 60.

‘The homes and business premises were searched not only for evidence but also for valuables bought with the criminal cash,’ police said in a statement. 

The investigation into the gang started last year and in February, the probe led to four people being arrested at a methamphetamine lab in Zeeland. Three of them were Colombian nationals.

Last year, Dutch police closed down 32 meth labs, more than three times the 2019 total.
