One-hundred-and-fifty-three stolen vehicles were recovered by Greek police last month, according to a relevant announcement by authorities in the country, during a Europe-wide operation.

Police authorities throughout Europe recovered 505 stolen vehicles, the result of the Frontex-run “Mobile 6” operation.

In Greece, specifically, several arrests were made, including 16 people on migrant smuggling charges, along with 73 third country nationals detained for illegally entering the country. Additionally, 85 grams of cocaine were discovered during thousands of vehicle registration checks. Four of the recovered cars in Greece had their vehicle identification number altered.

The Frontex (the European Border and Coast Guard Agency) operation spanned 31 countries, with the participation of more than 400 law enforcement officers.
