Police from Saxony, Thuringia and the Czech Republic broke a crystal meth manufacturing ring earlier this month and confiscated the haul, which is enough to produce 2.3 tonnes of crystal meth, and also made at least 16 arrests, including the ring leader, a 32-year-old pharmaceuticals retailer from Leipzig. Crystal meth has evolved into a major scourge in the Czech-German border region and is becoming a popular drug in cities deeper inside Germany.
