Netherlands' largest cocaine lab busted

Dutch police raided the facility in the central city of Apeldoorn, and arrested 17, most Colombians. As well as equipment and tens of thousands of litres of chemicals, cops found 100kg of cocaine base.
They also found 120 tonnes of what they described as "carrier material". This was described as clothing which is laced with cocaine. The drug is then removed in a chemical process at its destination.

The lab was housed inside an old riding school in Nijeveen, around 75 miles northeast of Amsterdam. Production capacity was around 150 to 200 kilos of cocaine per day.
