Following police operations conducted in Trikala, Thessaloniki, Kozani, Katerini and Kastoria, police officers made 25 arrests -- 23 of those arrested were suspected of being members of the ring.
The large-scale operation was carried out on Monday by over 60 officers.
According to reports police have identified three of the ring’s alleged five leaders: a 51-year-old Greek who was arrested on Monday, a 38-year-old Bulgarian national currently in prison as well as a 38-year-old Bulgarian still at large.
Police estimated that the ring had so far distributed 18 kilos of heroin at an estimated street value of over 2 million euros.
