The police have received a "handful" of tips after a broadcast of Opsporing Verzocht in which the police ask for information about the street dealer who is selling white heroin as cocaine.

17 tourists have fallen victim to this since mid-September. Three tourists have not survived, including two young men from Britain. These two friends have since been identified as Shaun Bortherston (20) and Bradley Price (21). They were in Amsterdam to celebrate Shaun's 21st birthday.

According to the police, the broadcast has not yet led to the "golden tip" that could lead to the dealer's arrest. Justice recently decided to offer a 15 thousand euro reward for the golden tip.
