A blitz raid conducted by the Rapid Intervention forces started on Friday in Vlora aiming the arrest of wanted individuals. The seizure of luxury vehicles with dubious origin was also one of the motives behind this raid. A series of inspections are being conducted in different neighborhoods and luxury vehicles in search for weapons and narcotics.
The coastal city of Vlora is known for the high presence of criminal elements which have been identified as part of criminal contingents, mostly involved in the drugs smuggling.
The blitz raid in this city follows another one conducted one day ago in Elbasan where several people were stopped and questioned by the police. The State Police General Director Haki Çako ordered this large scale raid after an incident which happened a few days ago when a police vehicle was hit by an armored car.
