During a press conference on 6 December 2018 in Podgorica, the Chief State Prosecutor Mr. Milivoje Katnic and Chief of Sector for Fight Against Organized Crime and Corruption Mr. Zoran Lazovic informed the public that an Organised Crime Group (OCG) functioning in Montenegro had been dismantled. This announcement followed exchanges of evidence between the Montenegrin Police Directorate and State Prosecutors Office on the unauthorized possession and marketing of narcotics.

The OCG had been operational since early 2018 and transported and distributed narcotics in several European Member states. Croatian and Montenegrin forces, supported by IPA/2017 Countering Serious Crime in the Western Balkans Project, exchanged information on the investigations during operational meetings and this led to the arrest of two subjects in Montenegro and to the opening of an investigation of a company. In Croatia four subjects were arrested and 448 kg of marijuana and 2.5 kg of amphetamine were seized.
