Campo de Gibraltar drugs’ ring raided 

The Civil Guard has dismantled a drug trafficking organisation and its logistics base in Cadiz.

Seventeen members of the organisation have been arrested and another four people are still under investigation.

Police raided 13 properties in different locations in Campo de Gibraltar (Cádiz), in which five vessels, six weapons, 1,734 kilos of hashish and 3,400 litres of fuel were seized.

The investigation began in September of 2017, when the Civil Guard detected an organisation of drug traffickers that was operating in the Sotogrande area (Cádiz), where the ringleader owned a property from which he directed and controlled the caches.

The gang had two houses in Palmones (Los Barrios), on the beachfront, from where boats were launched, which had been previously modified, to secure the interior and allow their quick entry and exit.

They had also installed sophisticated perimeter and zone security systems in order to detect the presence of police forces in the vicinity.
