Austrian Police Have Found 400,000 Ecstasy Pills Worth Millions

The Austrian government has come out and said they have seized 400,000 Ecstasy pills worth millions Euros in a truck headed to Istanbul from Amsterdam. Andrea Doczy the Finance Ministry says the street value the drugs is about $4.64 million US Dollars. The drugs were found on October 31st during a search the truck in the city Wels, Austria. The pills were supposedly hidden in barrels in the truck. The driver said he was paid $11,590 US Dollars to transport the drugs, most likely from the dealer who they came from or a person in charge transporting the dealer’s drugs.

We don’t know what kind prison term the driver could receive and it is hard to tell because Europe’s countries have different laws than the USA. Plus the fact that he was caught in a different country than where they came from could have an effect. Amsterdam has long been a worldwide supply illegal drugs because its relaxed drug laws. Much the ecstasy consumed in the entire world is made there and a shipment like this could be minuscule when compared to the total scale what they export.
