Officers of the General Directorate for Combating Organized Crime (GDBOP) have arrested the leader of an organized crime group specialized in drug trafficking and distribution.

In the course of the specialized police operation, officers of the Anti-Drug Unit of GDBOP caught the leader of the gang involved in transporting and distributing South American cocaine in Bulgaria.

40-year-old K.D. had a nationwide search warrant issued against him after anti-mafia police busted four members of the group during a drug deal on April 9.

The four offenders were found to possess 6 capsules of cocaine weighing about 60 grams in total.

During the searches of their homes, the police officers found two pistols and a Kalashnikov with blurred ID numbers, a muffler, a number of cell phones with Bulgarian and foreign SIM cards, fake ID documents, bank documents and an electronic scale.

On April 10, GDBOP officers managed to locate the mastermind behind the crime ring.

K.D and his 44-year-old aide, I.I, were caught in Sofia.

The case materials have been sent to the Specialized Prosecutor's Office and the investigation will continue under the supervision of a prosecutor.
