The coach driver who is suspected of attempting to smuggle 341.8 kilograms of marijuana into Dubrovnik on a tourist bus was brought to the State Attorney's Office around 9:30 this morning. Shortly afterwards, the owner of the tourist agency was also arrested.
Yesterday, a press conference was held at the Dubrovnik-Neretva Police Department, at which the head of the Criminal Police Service, Zoran Tikvica, presented the seized marijuana and explained that the smuggling was successfully prevented.
"A bus of Dubrovnik license plates, registered at a tourist agency from Dubrovnik, approached the Karasovici border crossing from Montenegro on Thursday at 3:30 pm and was operated by a male person from Dubrovnik. He immediately aroused suspicion and police officers noticed 17 black bags. When asked what they contained, the driver said that it was the sports equipment of a team from Brazil that he was driving to Montenegro,” Tikvic told reporters.
