Police detained two heroin dealers from Prilep in a raid on the Skopje – Veles highway.

The car stopped at a paytoll booth and that is when the police jumped the driver and the passenger. More details about the arrest are expected tomorrow. The smugglers were identified as A.K. (44) and A.T. (30).

This is the second major drug raid involving Prilep smugglers. On Friday, 200 kilograms of marijuana from a farm reportedly owned by the Zaev family were seized as they were being  moved north of Prilep. The shipment was being escorted by Prilep police commissioner Kiril Spirkoski, who was arrested, along with the personal driver of Zaev’s cousin Trajce Zaev.
