The trio is suspected of dealing in heroin and cocaine on a large scale, police said in the morning. They are said to have primarily served the drug market in the Rhine metropolis – including on the Theaterplatz. The gang was also active in other cities.

After months of investigations, four apartments in Krefeld and two in Willich have now been searched. Some of the accommodations are said to have served purely as depots for the drugs.

The found heroin and cocaine has a street value of around 30,000 euros according to an initial assessment by the police.
