SKOPJE, Macedonia (AP) -- Macedonia's interior minister says police have seized more than 10,000 Ecstasy pills and cracked down on an international criminal ring.
Gordana Jankulovska says Friday's searches of a vehicle near Skopje and an apartment in the town of Veles, about 35 miles to the south, yielded 10,355 Ecstasy pills, 300 grams of marijuana and 50 grams of amphetamine powder.
Three Macedonian nationals have been arrested and charged with the transportation of illegal drugs. A criminal charge will also be issued against one Bulgarian national.
Jankulovska told reporters Saturday the arrests were made after cooperation with Romanian police. The drugs were destined for sale in Macedonia and Kosovo.
