Anti-gang task force seizes 33 knives

Christiania net café a hiding place for sharp cache

The Copenhagen police department’s special gang unit, Task Force East, raided a net café in Christiania yesterday and confiscated 31 knives. Police found two additional knives in a similar action on Monday. 

The total of 33 knives are more than police collected in the first four months of 2013. Police described the find as "alarming".

In addition to the knives, police seized 295 grammes of cannabis, 20,000 kroner in cash and a small amount of anabolic steroids.

”The discovery shows that organised criminals in and around Pusher Street are still selling hash and committing the crimes that go with it,” the Copenhagen Police said in a press release.
