Cocaine stuffed crabs: certainly sir


NEXT time you order crab claws in your favourite seafood restaurant, check carefully what you are eating. Police have made arrests in the Costa Blanca and Pontevedra, concerning drugs reportedly being shipped around Spain in boxes of spider crabs.

The ongoing police operation, named Operation Torreta (Turret), resulted in the arrest of 17 people involved in the distribution and sale of cocaine, the Interior Ministry said. In raids of 16 properties the police confiscated quantities of the drug, as well as illegal tablets (as yet unidentified), marijuana, cash, and more disturbingly, a pistol. The seafood distribution was used as cover for delivery of the illegal substances.
