15 arrested in Nazareth drug, illegal meat raid

Over 150 police officers working in coordination with the attorney general’s office arrested 15 Nazareth restaurateurs and businessmen Monday for money laundering, drug dealing and selling over 100 kg. of illegally procured meat.

According to police, the joint operation was recently initiated following widespread reports of financial fraud among at least 17 restaurants, area businesses and butchers in the area working together to launder millions of shekels and sell the illegal meat.

“Information was picked up over the last few weeks which led to concrete evidence of widespread illegal activity under the same umbrella in terms of money laundering and selling illegal meat,” said Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.
