“Goodbye Germany” star Jürgen Albers
Drug suspicion: He was arrested
Eschweiler instead of Mallorca: Jürgen Albers’ restart on the Balearic island failed and now the “Goodbye Germany” star in Germany apparently has a drug problem.
This dream of emigrating went so badly wrong: Jürgen Albers (60) wanted to make a fresh start in Mallorca – accompanied by the Vox TV documentary “Goodbye Germany” . A disco on the Balearic island was the dream he wanted to fulfill.
But the “Disco” project didn’t work out, and somewhere along the way his marriage broke up. After six years, the Mallorca emigrant returned to Germany and ran an engineering office for automotive technology in Eschweiler.
As the “Bild” newspaper claims to have learned, the emigrant is said to have been arrested by the police because he is said to have dealt in cocaine on a large scale. Together with another suspect, he is said to have traded 436 kilograms of cocaine with an estimated value of around 43 million euros. According to RTL information, the house of the former TV protagonist was searched in Eschweiler.
“Goodbye Germany”: Episodes with Albers are no longer shown
“I can confirm that the 60-year-old was arrested by a person known from television,” public prosecutor Jan Balthasar was quoted as saying by various media.
“My client intends to cooperate with the investigative authorities and denies the allegations,” Alber’s lawyer Peter Nickel told RTL.
Vox wants to refrain from broadcasting the old episodes of “Goodbye Germany” with Albers until further notice, as broadcaster Julia Kikillis confirmed. “As long as the allegations have not been clarified, we will not plan any repeat episodes with him.”
