Drugs bust on Costa del Sol

FOUR Guardia Civil officers were injured and two vehicles were left write-offs following a high-speed car chase in El Ejido.

The chase came after the Guardia Civil went to investigate reports of a wanted vehicle on the Pampanico-El Ejido road. A number of Guardia patrols were involved in the pursuit through an area of greenhouses in the Tarambana-Balanegra areas.

According to reports the driver of the vehicle being chased put other road users at risk and the officers themselves by hurling towards them several times, also coming of the road and even colliding with a parked car.

The chase came to an end on the N-340 with the arrest of the driver, but only after he had smashed violently into one of the Guardia patrol vehicles from behind and one from behind, causing minor injuries to four officers.

The Guardia identified the detainee as F.M., an habitual offender who had been detained on a number of occasions in recent months for robbery.
