Sinking feeling for smugglers

RECOVERED: Speedboat that sank was refloated.

TWO drug smugglers were arrested after they were forced to abandon ship after they overloaded it with contraband. The speedboat began to sink because of the 730kg of hash.

In any case the smugglers were likely to be arrested as National Police and customs officers from Almeria had been tracking them after the load was transferred from a larger boat to the launch.

As the boat began to sink, the men jumped on to a third boat moored close to the shore and were caught off the coast of Motril.
