Eight arrested for cocaine sales in Adeje 

National police have arrested eight people for selling drugs in the south of Tenerife, specifically in Adeje.

The six men and two women are aged between 30 and 39 years of age. They face charges of belonging to a criminal organisation and drug trafficking.
The investigation revealed that those involved were dedicated to the distribution of cocaine and hashish.
Enquiries began last August when police learned that the commercialisation of illegal substances was carried out from a house located in the Armeñime district by an organised group, where each member had their specific task. One of them stored the largest amount of the drug at home and supplied cocaine and hashish to other members of the group for sale. After identifying the different members of the organisation, the national police officers proceeded to detain the defendants and transferred them the south police station.
The agents intervened 200 grams of high purity cocaine, substances for cutting and elements for distribution, 3.2 kilos of hashish, anabolic substances and two vehicles. In the raids, they found 3,200 euros.
