The National Investigation Bureau (NNI) has seized over 50kg of illicit drugs of Serbian origin with a street value of 150 million forints (EUR 387,000) from a Hungarian couple living in Budapest and a dealer, said on Wednesday.

An operation carried out on Monday in the couple’s flat uncovered 39kg of marijuana treated with a precursor and 9kg of hashish and amphetamine, as well as machines used for packing the drugs into plastic bags, the police portal said.

The flat had been used by the 37-year-old man, identified only as Igor P, as a venue for selling the drugs which were stashed in his wife’s sewing room, it said.

In the operation, a dealer, a 30-year-old man identified as Krisztian K, was caught at a junction in Budapest and 5kg of marijuana was seized from his car.

The two men have been taken into custody and the 23-year-old wife is free on bail.
