On Friday interim Amsterdam mayor Jozias van Aartsen ordered that a home on De Klencke be locked down for three months following the discovery of large amounts of hard drugs in the home late in March, the Amsterdam municipality announced on Monday.

4.53 kilograms of MDMA, almost 40 thousand euros in cash, a sealing device, packaging materials and a gas gun were found in the home, reports. 

The municipality considers the presence of hard drugs in the home a serious danger to public order and safety. Mayor Van Aartsen therefore decided to put the home on lockdown for three months, starting immediately.
