ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece police are looking for a drug-smuggling gang that abandoned an 830-kilogram (1,800-pound) stash of marijuana on a southern beach.
A police statement says the drugs were found early Thursday near the port town of Kyllini, in the Peloponnese region about 250 kilometers (150 miles) southwest of Athens.
The marijuana was packaged in 56 bundles. Police are investigating whether a vehicle found nearby had been used by the unknown smugglers.
Police said the drugs did not appear to have been washed ashore, but it was unclear whether they had been brought in by sea or were supposed to have been picked up by boat and shipped elsewhere.
The packages were found following a tip-off. Police did not give an estimate for the stash's street value.
