Materials able to produce one billion ecstasy pills have been seized by Dutch police

A large-scale production of ecstasy pills has been halted by Dutch police.

Reuters states materials - thought to be able to make up to one billion pills - were seized near the Holland-Belgium border on Thursday night.

Officers are said to have come across 100 canisters of hydrogen, 15 tons of caustic soda and 3,000 liters of other chemicals in a parked truck in Rilland, a village in the Dutch province of Zeeland.

The police said: "The truck-and-trailer most probably served as a storage facility for an ecstasy laboratory."

No street value was given by the police, but the raw materials are said to be valued at €100,000 (£85,000).
