They monitored 5.5 kilos of drugs with cameras: two young men arrested in Randazzo

They kept over 5.5 kilograms of narcotic substances in a building in which they used them, monitoring the drugs with a sophisticated CCTV system. This is the charge brought against two 25-year-olds, a man and a woman, who were arrested by the carabinieri of the Randazzo company, supported by colleagues from the investigative unit of the provincial command of Catania and the Cacciatori di «Sicilia». The two are engaged, he with a clean record, she with a police record.

The keys to the building were found in the man’s backpack and on the premises the carabinieri found 4.9 kilograms of marijuana, 140.77 grams of cocaine, 76.35 grams of heroin and 411.3 grams of hashish, as well as cut, material for packaging doses. Also seized were four precision weighing scales, three transceiver radios, two counterfeit car license plates and a sophisticated “jammer”, an eight-band radio frequency jammer. Soldiers of the Arma then discovered that a room of the house was used as an “indoor greenhouse” for the cultivation of marijuana, equipped with a special water system complete with irrigation pipes, containers and water pump, halogen lamps for the production of heat, air ducts and electrical system. The arrest of the two suspects was validated by the judicial authority, which ordered the man to be placed in custody in prison.
