    Turkish police seize 112 kg of heroin in Istanbul

    ANKARA, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- Turkish police seized 112 kg of heroin in an anti-drug operation in its largest city of Istanbul on Sunday, the semi-official Anatolia news agency reported.

    Acting on a tip-off, police raided a warehouse and a residential house in the Buyukcekmece district and detained six people in connection with the drug.

    Turkey is a key transit route for smuggling drugs from Asia and the Middle East to markets in Western Europe.

    In 2008, Turkish security forces waged a total of 15,000 operations against drugs, confiscating more than 15 tons of heroin,39 tons of hashish and 1.4 million ecstasy pills and arresting 32,000 suspects, according to the agency.

    A “funny” incident happened in Kosovo about a month ago when 46 killos of pure heroin was stolen from…… a f…. Police Evidence Room.
    And this apparently was not a high-tech robbery as seen on movies but rather a clim through emergency staircase to the room where evidence was kept


    A graffiti sign written “ Yoooo Coppers – How much for a kilo ? “outside the police headquarters resulted in some basketball supporters being arrested
