The arrests follow an incident earlier this year in which one of the soldiers was arrested for using drugs at a festival. Gendarmerie officers found information on his cell phone that led to nine of his others.
The drugs are said to have been used by off-duty soldiers. Most of them were arrested in five separate army barracks across the country, Telegraaf said, one of whom was arrested during a training exercise in Germany.
Further arrests have not been ruled out.
Koninklijke Marechhaussee said last week: 4 service members of troops arrested on hard drug charges.
