Biggest drug haul in Sziget history

Police arrested two Dutch men last week as they seized the largest quantity of illegal drugs ever discovered at the Sziget Festival.

Traffic was unusually high at one of the tents pitched on the festival grounds, and this caught the eyes of some security guards.

They also noticed that people arrived with cash and left with small packages. They then notified the police.

The two young men – aged 21 and 22 –held more than Ft 5 million worth of drugs and had an extensive price list of the products they sold.

Police confiscated one kilogram of suspicious pink tablets, 128 grams of ground plants, 451 rolled cigarettes, as well as paraphernalia needed to dispense and sell drugs.

A court decided that the two suspects should remain in custody, due to the large quantity of drugs in their possession.
