Two men arrested for heroin sales in Gran Canaria 


Police who launched a drugs operation in Gran Canaria searched several houses on a court order and arrested two men.

They had been tipped off in November about an apartment in Las Palmas being used for drug sales.

Officers set up a watch and saw a stream of people visiting the property at all times of the day to buy heroin.

“The investigations revealed that the two men arrested transported the drug from their home to the apartment in the district of Guanarteme, ” said a police spokesman. “The drugs were already prepared for sale. One of the men at the time of his arrest had 100 bags of herion hidden around his body.”

The pair arrested are both from Ghana, one aged 34 and the other 48.

During the search of the properties, half a kilo of heroin was found, together with other stolen goods.
