12 arrested in international police raid

Published torsdag 14 oktober 2010 kl 19.45

Several Swedish citizens have been arrested in an international effort to stop criminal networks selling medicines and drugs online.

Raids have been done by police in 45 different countries and in Sweden 12 people were arrested in Stockholm, Södertälje and Kalmar. Swedish police confiscated about 60.000 pills mainly potency-enhancing drugs, sleeping pills and anabolic steroids.

“This is a serious crime since the Internet is so accessible. There are no age limits online which means that, no matter how old you are, you can buy illegal medical products,” police investigator Cecilia Fant, told Swedish Radio news.

The Swedish Food and Drug Administration, customs and police cooperated with Interpol and the raid was nicknamed “Operation Pangea”.
