An additional 17 kilos of drugs have been found in a Dutch athletes car at the Sziget music festival in Hungary. Last week, police discovered huge amounts of ecstasy and marijuana being sold from a tent site leading to the arrest of two Dutch men.
Hungarian police have now released footage of the mammoth drug bust, said to be the largest in the history of the festival.
Two Dutch males are in jail and have been refused bail after being accused of selling mass quantities of drugs to the festivals 100,000 ticket-holders. Judging by the footage it was going to be one hell of a party.
Who are the alleged dealers?
One of the males is reportedly Dutch rising star sprinter, 21-year-old Roelf B, who represented the Netherlands at the European Championships Under 23 last month.
But, he won’t be able to run away from this mess, as he and his 22-year-old business partner will now be facing the possibility of life in prison if Hungary brings charges of drug-trafficking against the pair. If the charge is downgraded to drug-dealing they’ll be staring down a maximum sentence of 8 years. That’s a loooong festival.

The men allegedly brought 20,000 doses of drugs to the festival, with an estimated worth of around €300,000.
What happens in the video?
A dog searches through a van. Police officers open packages and bags, moving hundreds of pre-rolled joints and tiny zip-lock baggies into evidence containers. A bag with a ‘Team NL’ logo is brimming with pills.
Thousands of price lists are also stacked inside the car, advertising ecstasy pills for €15, a gram of weed for €25, and a pre-rolled joint for €15.
