Cannabis and cocaine were seized and 9 people were arrested.

From June 17 to June 19, 2024, an anti-narcotics operation (clear place) was carried out in the Cahors agglomeration at the initiative of the public prosecutor’s office, in consultation with the Lot prefecture, by the DDPN 46, in order to continue the fight against drug trafficking. The FSI (internal security forces) of the Cahors police station were reinforced by 25 personnel from the southern zone of the national police (Toulouse, Montauban and Nîmes), including 3 dog teams specializing in the search for narcotics and 4 bikers.

This significant mobilization of the ISF made it possible to carry out striking actions within 4 identified neighborhoods, Croix de Fer, Terre Rouge, Sainte-Valérie in Cahors, and Les Escales in Pradines, as a place for the resale of narcotics and led to the dismantling of 3 points of sale with the support of the technical services of Lot Habitat which notably carried out the removal of bulky items, street furniture as well as a cabin used on a resale point. Several end-of-life vehicles were also removed as well as tags erased. More than a hundred sachets of cannabis (herb and resin) intended for sale were seized, as well as doses of cocaine also packaged for resale and more than 2,400 euros.

In total, 9 individuals were arrested, 3 for drug trafficking. One of them will be presented to the prosecution on Friday for immediate appearance. An individual wanted in the context of a European arrest warrant issued by Spain was arrested as well as an individual subject to a search warrant and a foreigner in an irregular situation.

Numerous road and identity checks were also carried out during these operations. 5 traffic offenses were noted (insurance failures and lack of driving license), and numerous traffic violations were noted.
