Large 2020 drugs haul at Zurich airport despite fewer flights
The Federal Customs Office says over a tonne of drugs were seized at Zurich airport over 2020.
In addition, 27 people were arrested. This high number of seizures belies the massive reduction in flights last year due to the pandemic.
One of the biggest individual hauls was a kilo of heroin.
The drugs came in from all over the world, including South America, Asia and Africa. In total 20 men and 7 women aged between 17 to 68 years old were apprehended.
