“A huge sum of money was being transferred, for instance, inside a Hello Kitty toy. A part of the amphetamine haul has been particularly strong, according to the National Bureau of Investigation’s forensic laboratory,” Nikonen said.
 
The police suspect that heroin, amphetamine and methamphetamine had been distributed mostly in Helsinki but also elsewhere in Finland.
 
Tens of people have been interrogated in the pre-trial investigation, of which 12 are in pre-trial detention.
