Police found 221 tarantulas spider in the Brussels


The Brussels-West police have found a collection of 221 tarantulas, which also included several poisonous species, in a rented flat in Jette in Brussels. The man who was living inside was reportedly breeding and selling the spiders himself.

According to the reports from La Capitale, the officer of the police zone Brussels-West discovered the spiders about two weeks ago during an investigation into a dispute between the owner as well as the tenant of one of the apartments in a building on Rue Honoré Longtin in Jette.


The police informed the office of the public prosecutor, and it was estimated that there was around €10,000 worth of spiders in the apartment.

Moreover, later on, an expert was sent to the scene who discovered that there were 221 spiders, and 26 of them were proved to be particularly dangerous and aggressive.

The investigators have also discovered that there were two terrariums that were left open without lids as well as were positioned near a window. This means there was a heightened risk of one of the spiders that were escaping.

Along with this, all of the spiders have since been confiscated as well as taken to a specialized centre in Germany.

The person that was living in that flat who is a Polish man who mentioned that he was sharing and exchanging the spiders between Belgium, the Netherlands and Poland, was questioned, and an official report was drawn up for illegal control of as well rade in these spiders.

Furthermore, he has hired a lawyer to try and get his spiders back.
