Children’s find on Torrevieja beach sparks intense search


A GROUP of children holidaying in Torrevieja made a find on Saturday (August 22) which resulted in police and Red Cross members carrying out an intense sea-search for drugs.

The children, playing on the beach between Los Locos and La Mata, spotted a suspicious-looking brown package, which after one of their fathers called the police turned out to contain an estimated 30 kilos of hashish.

Suspecting the package had been thrown from a boat by smugglers, the authorities set Red Cross members on jet-skis and a Local Police force boat to work searching for more packages, although they have not reported whether any were found.
