THREE men have been arrested on suspicion of trafficking drugs after they were stopped in their car at the Calahonda toll of the AP-7.
Suspicions were raised when the three Moroccan men became agitated as their car pulled up to the police check point, however suspicions and eyebrows were raised further when one of the men got out of the vehicle sporting a large bulge in his trousers.
Not believing that what they were seeing was all ‘him’, they searched the man discovering a large number of capsules full of hashish stuffed in his underpants.
The police then searched the other two men and the car but found nothing.
Unconvinced that there were no more drugs being transported, the officers sent the men to the Hospital Costa del Sol for x-rays.
It was there that the police officers’ suspicions were confirmed to be correct as the medical team both extracted, and had to wait for nature to take its course to retrieve 250 capsules (three kilos) of hashish, which had a market value of €5,300.
The three men were arrested under public health laws and taken into custody.
