212 kg of cannabis resin, more than 300,000 euros in cash, weapons, two cars and 1,500 counterfeit cigarette cartridges: significant confiscation.

And this is the result of nine months of investigations carried out by the Palaiseau Investigation Brigade (Essonne) with the support of the Île-de-France Surveillance and Surveillance Group (GOSIF) and after the discovery of a drug import network by a company of the departmental gendarmerie of Palaiseau.

Large catch disclosed by the National Gendarmerie in a press release dated Wednesday, October 19, 2022.
