In a joint half-year-long operation, the Czech and Bavarian police and customs officers have seized more than a kilogram of methamphetamine. The operation that focused on the trafficking of the drug across the border between the Czech Republic and Germany took place between July and December of last year. The drugs seized by the special cross-border taskforce could have served some 40,000 users. Bavaria and Saxony have been experience an increase in meth trafficking from the Czech Republic in the past three years. Some Bavarian politicians have criticized the Czechs for the country’s allegedly lenient drug policies.
