Charges brought against Hungarian drug dealer arrested in Montenegro

Prosecutors have brought charges against a Hungarian drug dealer who was arrested in Montenegro on an international warrant, the Budapest chief prosecutor's office said on Monday.

The 35-year-old man was dealing in drugs in Budapest and the city’s vicinity and was helped by several accomplices, the office said in a statement.

In a raid at a garage in Budapest, police officers seized 80 kilos of marijuana in January 2021. To escape arrest, the drug dealer went into hiding abroad and was arrested several months later in Montenegro, the prosecutor’s office said.

Charges have been pressed against 12 suspects and include dealing in commercial amounts of illicit drugs, abuse of new psychoactive substances and other crimes.
