Dutch police seize ecstasy pills
Dutch police have arrested two men and confiscated 250,000 ecstasy pills in Kerkrade near the German border in the south of the Netherlands. The arrests were made during a drugs transaction at a garden centre car park.
A 45-year-old German and a 42-year-old Dutchman are being held. It is thought the Dutch suspect was the supplier of the drugs.
The Dutch operation was the result of a tip-off by German police. A third person has been arrested in Germany in connection with the case. The two men arrested by the Dutch police will be handed over to the German authorities.
