The news comes a day after the police confiscated three million kroner in cash, hundreds of kilos of cannabis, weapons, cars and some Harley Davidson motorcycles in a Zealand-wide raid. Among the 80 arrests were several members of the Hells Angels.

”It’s our impression that the Hells Angels have had a leading role in connection with many of the cannabis booths in Christiania,” Jørgen Skov, a police spokesperson, told Ekstra Bladet.

Politigården prison has the capacity to house 25 prisoners and is known for containing extremely dangerous inmates.
