AFTER a joint investigation carried out by the National Police and Guardia Civil, two arrests have been made on the Costa del Sol for an alleged crime of drug trafficking.
Officers seized a reported total of 14 kilograms of marihuana, 700 grams of hashish and 750 of MDMA.
The detainees, who were based in Malaga, were allegedly carrying out frequent international drug shipments through postal services from Marbella, Mijas, Fuengirola and Malaga capital.
The parcels were being sent to the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, France and Italy, according to a statement given by the National Police.
The investigation, known as ‘Tulipances-Rebote19’, started last October after detections were made of narcotic shipments from the Malaga province to different European Union countries.
After joint police efforts, two people have been arrested as the presumed authors of the crimes and linked to a larger criminal group specialising in drug trafficking.
The two individuals, of Canadian and English nationalities, were detained in Marbella and Mijas and have been placed in hands of the Court of Instruction of Marbella.
The investigation was developed by the Group II of Narcotics of UDYCO of the provincial police station of Malaga and the ODAIFIS (Office of Analysis and Fiscal Investigation and Security) of the Guardia Civil of Seville.
