Police drugs net closes

RICH CROP: Fertilisers, seeds, a GPS, a PC tablet, and 11 mobile phones were all seized during the raids.

SEVEN people were held and another questioned for the alleged cultivation and distribution of nearly 2,900 marihuana plants in Malaga province.

A National Police investigation into a Dutch drug distribution network led to raids on four different houses in Mijas and Cartama where drugs were being grown.

The largest marihuana plantation was found in a 128 square-metre basement, which had been hidden under the false floor of a wooden house.

All four houses were equipped with professional ventilation systems, featuring industrial air filters for eliminating the drug’s smell. The suspects had allegedly by-passed the electric meter so it did not raise suspicion over higher energy consumption.

This is the second stage of the anti-drug Operation Ramses. The first stage was nationwide, with 17 people being held including eight in Malaga province.
