Police in The Netherlands recently raided a premises, where they discovered suspected dealers were working. Inside the home was a set of 3D printers which were used to create a set of cartridges made to look like they’d be used in Nintendo consoles. Four people were arrested in total as part of the raid, which was part of a dark web dealing setup that saw substances shipped as far-flung as Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.

The 3D printers were in a large shed in Werkendam, which were also used to create fake printer cartridges and makeup boxes, inside which was a variety of substances — such as LSD, cocaine and MDMA. The group was discovered back in May 2017, with the police keeping tabs on the operation to see how it worked. De Telegraaf reports that Netherlands is the highest producer of drugs in Europe and is known as a key transit country for those in the drug business.
