Police say that the street value of the drugs, in what they are calling Finland's largest ever amphetamine seizure, is estimated at close to 3 million euros. The 54kg of exceptionally high-grade amphetamines was seized by police in May in the municipality of Nokia.
Police have 13 suspects in the case, 9 of which are in custody. None of the suspects are Finnish citizens, but those who took delivery of the shipments are residents of Finland. Most of the suspects are Moroccans, but also include Dutch, Algerian, Russian and Latvian citizens.
