A 21-YEAR old from Huercal-Overa is under arrest for attempted murder after firing shots at a car with two people inside.

The bullets hit the window, but no-one was injured.

Investigations revealed he had been involved in a cocaine and marijuana sales setup from a property in Huercal-Overa and had an extensive criminal record.


A search of the property resulted in the seizure of a tin of marijuana buds, 22 bags of the same drug, 14.4 grammes of cocaine, €4,500 in cash and the gun used to fire at the victims. As well attempted murder, officers charged the 21-year old with drug trafficking, illegal possession of arms and traffic safety violations.

They also detained an 18 and a 20-year old who were inside the property for crimes against public health.
