A BRITISH man from Palmanova has been arrested and 30 people are being investigated in connection with the sale of 2,500 false ‘Viagra’ pills in Calvia.

The Guardia Civil launched an inquiry after learning the prohibited drugs – a substitute called Boner Gold and Maxx Blue – were being dispensed in vending machines in toilets at a number of establishments in the area.

The potency drugs were banned in Mallorca in 2016.

Several inspections were carried out and 1,000 tablets were recovered together with €1,000.

Further investigations led officers to the British man, believed to be behind the operation. On searching a warehouse in his name, 15 machines, 1,500 samples of the drug and €2,000 was reportedly seized.

In the last two months, 50 bars and establishments have been inspected in Calvia, Palma, Manacor, Alcudia and Inca.
