The drugs were seized last Thursday by officers from the Pagegiai criminal intelligence and special purpose unit in response to received information. They checked a Volvo V50 in Jurbarkas and found 20 packs with powder, suspected to have contained drugs.

The officers also detained a Jurbarkas male resident, 58, who was in the car.

Another man, a 50 year-old resident of Klaipeda, who was in a Citroen C4 Picasso nearby, was detained.

During the follow-up investigation, officers from the State Border Guard Service carried out searches in the apartments of women the Klaipeda man knew, and officers found 8,600 euros in cash in one of the apartment, and also 51 packs with powers were found in the apartment of a woman, 54.

A court sanctioned the arrest of the two men on one woman for two months.
