Police teams from Una-Sana Canton, Sarajevo Canton and Central Bosnia Canton searched 32 locations and arrested 29 people suspected of drug abuse and illegal possession of weapons and ammunition.

As part of the action, code-named “Network of Four”, 23 people were arrested in Zenica, two in Sarajevo and four in the Central Bosnia Canton, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Zenica-Doboj Canton stated.

Searches were carried out with the aim of finding and temporarily seizing items that could serve as evidence in further proceedings, as well as locating and arresting persons who are the target of the action. Some of the suspects are already in custody, and this police action is not over yet, so it can be expected that there will be more arrests.
