Acquedolci, found in possession of marijuana: a 58-year-old arrested


By John

In recent days, in Acquedolci, as part of checks aimed at combating drug dealing, the Carabinieri of Santo Stefano di Camastra arrested, in flagrante delicto, a 58-year-old local man, already known to the police, allegedly responsible of the crime of possession for the purpose of dealing narcotic substances.
The military arrived at the man, observing, over the last few days, his movements often in the company of young people known as drug users. Therefore believing that the 58-year-old could have drugs in his home, the Carabinieri organized a house search which allowed us to find over 75 grams of marijuana, together with a precision scale, probably used for the preparation of doses, cleverly hidden in a niche under the stairs.
The drugs, sent to the Carabinieri of the RIS of Messina for laboratory analysis, were seized together with the scale, while the 58-year-old was arrested and, upon order of the Judicial Authority, restricted to his home under house arrest, in waiting for the validation hearing.
