GUARDIA CIVIL officers at the port of Almeria have seized more than two kilograms of hashish.
The drugs were found during the routine inspection of a passenger who had just landed from Melilla. MPA, a 20-year-old resident of Granada, was arrested on suspicion of a crime against public health. The officers found 2.28 kilograms of hashish hidden in his luggage. The drugs had been concealed inside a box of coffee and juice cartons.
The drugs were located during routine screening at the port, as part of an ongoing initiative to clamp down on drugs. The detainee’s luggage raised suspicion among the officers, who decided to investigate further, finding the first package of hashish concealed in the coffee container. The Guardia Civil told Euro Weekly News that the drugs would have yielded more than 9,000 doses.
The detainee, along with details of the arrest, was passed to Court of Instruction number three in Almeria for processing. The haul is part of Spain’s ongoing fight against drugs.
