A criminal scheme to distribute drugs at the Black Sea resort of Sunny Beach has been busted. The scheme involved so-called "restaurant callers" - young people who work at the entrance of restaurants and invite tourists. 

Five men aged between 21 and 45 from Nigeria, Rwanda and Ghana, permanently residing in Bulgaria, were detained during the specialized police operation.

16 plastic bags of cocaine, about 40 grams of marijuana and 35 ecstasy tablets hidden in a cache on the beach were found and seized.
