In about ten minutes of presence at the entrance of the site, the dog followed by his master gendarme will mark the judgment on five people suspected of carrying illicit substances.
A young man throws down his product. Too late, the dog is already on him. The surprised young man is immediately surrounded by the impressive device of gendarmes of the Territoire de Belfort. The goods are seized.
This presence of police on the subject of drugs was unobtrusive last year or even invisible. This year, men in blue are everywhere. "There is a will of the state services to carry out offensive actions of prevention.A festival is not a zone of no right from where our presence" explains the lieutenant colonel Olivier Garoby of the gendarmerie group of the Territoire de Belfort.
