A drug bust in Ostróda, northern Poland, led to the arrest of four men, one of whom is known to be a former world champion in computer gaming. The police are said to have searched three apartments, finding and seizing drugs and illegal weapons estimated to a value of 800,000 PLN (around £140,000).
It is said that 1.5 kg of amphetamine, 10.5 kg of marijuana and several thousand ecstasy tablets were found among the narcotics. PLN 70,000 (around £12,000) in cash were also found and confiscated, along with two revolvers and 100 rounds of ammunition.
If found guilty, the suspects, aged between 24 and 30, could face a prison sentence of up to 12 years. We’re currently waiting on an update as to which gaming champion was arrested.
Update: It is believed to be 2007 Quake Championship winner Maciej”av3k” Krzykowski.
