The seizure consisted of 260 kilos of amphetamine and 240 kilos of hash, with a total street value of approximately SEK 80 million.

The amphetamine seizure is the largest seizure of the drug to date by the police in the Stockholm city police area so far have done.

The drugs were found after the police carried out a house search in another case and further investigative work led to an address in Tyresö. At that address, the large amount of narcotics was then found in a storage room in an apartment building.

Three men have been arrested on suspicion of particularly serious drug offences.

– This is a very large seizure. We work hard to get drugs off Stockholm's streets and this is part of that work. The investigation into the case is now continuing, says Susanne Wikland, deputy head of the Stockholm city police area, in a statement.
