Serbian police on Friday arrested Milan Zarubica, dubbed a ‘king of synthetic drugs’, in a joint police action with police in Macedonia.
Milan Zarubica, called one of the “greatest makers of synthetic drugs” in the region by Serbia’s Interior Ministry, was arrested on Friday in Serbia together with seven others suspected of making and selling narcotics.
“This action will probably continue on Turkish territory, where we collaborated with that country’s police to uncover the identities of potential buyers,” Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic said.
During the joint police action with Macedonia, an illegal lab was discovered in the western Macedonian town of Tetovo and 300 kilos of amphetamine pills was impounded. Another lab was discovered in Serbia, according to Stefanovic.
Stefanovic said that the Serbian and Macedonian police tracked Zarubica’s activities, the transfer of equipment between two countries and the set-up of laboratories where drugs were made.
