From his cell in Béziers prison, a man organised a drug dealing business. Four of his accomplices were arrested and imprisoned, after the seizure of €18,000 and cannabis.

The prisoner organised the drug trafficking around Florensac, from his cell.

"The police were able to demonstrate the existence of a network of acquisition and resale of narcotics directed from the prison by an inmate," the statement said on Friday.

A total of 11 people were arrested during the investigation, and have been charged and placed in pre-trial detention.
