Surveillance revealed that the 41-year-old then passed the items on to a couple who were in charge of taking them to Morocco and selling them.

Officers stopped the couple’s four-wheel drive on a road near Marbella and upon searching the vehicle found a hidden compartment containing 26 mobile phones and four tablets worth approximately €20,000.

All three people were arrested for receiving stolen goods.
