Officers of the Financial Crimes Squad (SDOE) on Thursday confiscated hundreds of bottles of contraband alcohol from a wholesaler based in Peristeri, western Athens, and arrested five people believed to have been involved in an illicit racket selling doctored alcohol.
A total of 1,424 bottles, all bearing forged labels, were seized from a warehouse in Peristeri.
Officers found substances that are believed to have been used to color and flavor alcohol.
A subsequent raid on another warehouse led to the confiscation of another 6,384 bottles of contraband alcohol.
