Night Raid Yields 42 in Drug and Weapons Trafficking Operation


Early this morning (Wednesday), a raid by the Central Detectives Unit with the assistance of the Border Police, in which 400 police officers participated in, yielded the arrests of 42 suspects in a drug- and weapons-trafficking operation throughout locations in the north and central regions of the country.

"The reduction of street crime will do much to contribute to the sense of personal security of the citizens," said District Commander, Bruno Stein. 

The suspects will appear today in the Petah Tikva and Rishon Letzion Magistrate's Courts, respectively, to discuss extension of detention.
