FIVE people were arrested in Malaga for allegedly selling synthetic drugs at parties in Malaga and Cadiz.
The investigation began after police found an increased number of people with drugs such as Ecstasy in recreational areas.
The five people attempted to avoid a police checkpoint by going into a nearby fuel station, but when they attempted to escape they were intercepted and arrested.
One was carrying Ecstasy down his trousers, another had four doses of speed in one of his socks and a third had 62 grammes of marihuana on his person. During a search, police found a further 280 grammes of marihuana ready for sale.
