Calm reigns on this Tuesday morning in the Nangues district, in Villiers-sur-Marne.
Monday afternoon, the atmosphere was quite different, as police arrested two young people involved in drug trafficking.
Villiers-sur-Marne: more urban violence in Hautes-Noues
It all started around 6 p.m. in the stairwell of a building in rue Léon-Blum, where police officers checked these two individuals.
"They are known for drug trafficking cases", tells us a source close to the investigation.
If the duo can leave, the police remain to visit the common areas.
136g of cannabis hidden in a firebox
They found there, hidden in a firebox, several dozen small sachets of narcotic products ready for sale.
Weighing later will reveal that it is a total of 74g of cannabis resin and 62g of herbal cannabis.
A scale was also found on site.
The cache discovered, "a discreet surveillance is in place," explains the same source.
The maneuver and discretion of the police, reinforced by an anti-crime squad (Bac), quickly paid off.
One of the two young people they have just checked returns to the stairwell with a very specific key in his hand to open the fire box.
The first arrest takes place.
It is quickly followed by a second, when the Bac crosses, not far, the other youngster checked earlier in the same stairwell.
He tries to flee, without success.
He tries to pull one of the arrested out of the police vehicle
Meanwhile, his friend, shackled, tries everything and also tries to evade the police.
The use of an electric pulse gun will be deemed necessary to get it into the vehicle.
But before rushing into the cabin, he has time to scream to attract young people from the neighborhood.
The police quickly realize that about twenty of them have decided to answer the call.
Some do not hesitate to come in contact with them in order to prevent the arrest of their comrades.
One even tries to pull his handcuffed comrade out of the car he is sitting in.
Police use LBDs and tear gas
At the same time, further along this narrow, one-way street Léon-Blum, others are getting organized, using a method well known to officials.
Large garbage containers and their contents, placed in the center of the street, are supposed to prevent the departure of those arrested.
The police then use a defense bullet launcher (LBD) and a tear gas canister to disperse the attackers, who witness the arrival of several police vehicles, called in support.
