Police find 600 kilograms of cocaine in house search: “Five people arrested” | Mechelen

MechelenDuring a house search in Mechelen, the Mechelen-Willebroek police found a significant amount of cocaine last weekend. Five people from Mechelen and Bonheiden were arrested.

The search took place on Sunday in a house along the Geerdegem-Schonenberg in Mechelen-South. According to our information, this came after a tip from the police. After the drugs were found, the Antwerp public prosecutor’s office was informed. He in turn requested an investigating judge.

Lieselotte Claessens, spokeswoman for the Mechelen department of the Antwerp public prosecutor’s office, confirms the discovery of a ‘quantity’ of drugs, but is otherwise very scant with information. Reportedly, it would be about 600 kilograms of cocaine. In addition to the drugs, a lot of money was also found.

Both drugs and money were seized. “Five people were also arrested,” concludes the public prosecutor’s office spokesperson. They were taken to the police station for questioning and will be brought before the investigating judge in the Mechelen courthouse on Monday.

It would concern two men and a woman aged 66, 32 and 55 years respectively from Bonheiden as well as two men aged 32 and 33 years from Mechelen. After their presentation to the investigating judge, it will become clear who will be arrested and who will not.

The investigation is now being continued by the local detective of the Mechelen police zone.
