French police seize seven tonnes of cannabis in Paris

French police seized more than seven tonnes of cannabis overnight in vehicles parked on a street in the west of Paris, marking the biggest seizure of the drug in France in two years, the government said on Sunday.

Customs officers found 7.1 tonnes of cannabis resin in unoccupied vehicles in the affluent 16th arrondissement of the French capital, the finance ministry, which oversees the country’s customs services, said in a statement.

The resale value of the drugs is estimated at nearly 15 million euros, the ministry said.
