10-year-old uncovers large drugs stash in Borås

A ten-year-old boy uncovered a stash of illicit drugs while out playing over the Easter weekend in the southern Swedish town of Borås.

According to police the find is described as large:

“The value of the find is in any case worth six figures, I can go that far,” said Bo Dahleman at Borås police to local newspaper Borås Tidning.

The boy took the package to his parents who in turn informed the police.

The police, who have praised the boy’s actions, proceeded to find further quantities of drugs at the location.

Police were on Sunday unwilling to specify the exact nature of the narcotics.

The pair were detained at the request of the Swedish police and have already been charged in absentia in the Scandinavian country.

Authorities in Sweden have been searching for the two suspects since the autumn of last year, news agency TT reports.

“We have been looking for them for a long time and they are suspected of belonging to a criminal network in northwestern Stockholm,” Mats Lindström of Stockholm Police said in a press statement.

“The Spanish police have assisted us in this work and they are now under arrest,” Lindström added.

The process for extradition of the two arrested individuals to Sweden has been initiated.
