“The facts were communicated to the Public Prosecutor’s Office, who is responsible for directing the investigation”, reads the note released by PSP.

In its statement, the Regional command of the Azores stresses that the prevention and fight against drug trafficking “will continue to be on the list of priorities for Strategic police action” in “the entire autonomous region of the Azores, not only because it continues to highlight a factor clearly associated with the practice of other crimes, but also because of the decline and harmful effects it causes for the health and well-being of consumers of these substances”.
