BERLIN – Berlin police say they've arrested two men on narcotics charges and are seeking a third after finding 80 kilograms (176 pounds) of heroin worth an estimated 3 million euros ($3.6 million).
Police said Wednesday the heroin was brought in from outside Germany. It was found Friday in suitcases and stashed inside rolls of industrial plastic wrap in the back of a car.
A 36-year-old Lebanese man suspected of importing the drugs was arrested, along with his 23-year-old German-Lebanese accomplice who is accused of being responsible for the storage and trafficking of the heroin. A 46-year-old Lebanese man is still on the run.
