The searches took place in a bar, a clubhouse and several private homes.

According to the investigators, they confiscated a sports car, five slot machines, more than €21,000 ($22,300) in cash, 14 smartphones, four prohibited stabbing weapons, gold jewelry, narcotics and tablets.

Arrest warrants were issued for two of the suspects, who are now in custody.
