Gang smuggled cocaine to Sweden via tiny Ven island

According to charge documents seen by The Local, two of the men used a semi-inflatable RIB speed boat to take 28kg of amphetamines, 3kg of cocaine and 5kg of ecstasy over from Rungsted in Denmark to Ven.
Of the two other men, one is accused of masterminding the operation and purchasing the RIB for 130,000 kronor the month before the smuggling took place, and the other of driving it from Sweden to Denmark.

“The actions of each and every one of then played a necessary role in committing the crime, through which they in each case, with full knowledge of their deeds, carried out the above drugs smuggling,” prosecutor Ulla Karlbrink wrote in the charge sheet submitted to Lund District Court on Tuesday.

The gang were caught after a member of the public informed the local coast guard that men where offloading bags at the harbour in Kyrkbacken, a village on the west of the island.
