An international anti-narcotics raid conducted on Wednesday by the State Police, Guardia di Finanza and Italian Police led to the seizure of nearly 4 tons of marijuana.
The large narcotics quantity was seized on board of a yacht sailing under the US flag. The yacht carrying the marijuana quantity was blocked after a long pursuit by the Guardia di Finanza speedboats and helicopters.
Three Albanians, whose only initials F.M. E.V. and E.M, were arrested in flagrance on board of the yacht.
Preliminary inquiries indicate that the yacht has not entered the Albanian territorial waters. No further details have been made public so far by the State Police due to the inquiry's secrecy.
