THE Guardia Civil have found over €38,000 in cash buried on a rural farm in Muro in Mallorca, Spain.
The discovery formed part of a major anti-drug operation in Spain which has so far arrested 33 people in Mallorca, Barcelona, Lleida and Huesca who belonged to a criminal gang. These individuals were responsible for trafficking huge amounts of narcotics into the Balearic Islands through cars travelling on ferries.
The group supplied drugs to dealers throughout the island and had contacts in Colombia who provided them high purity cocaine that was cut down at a home laboratory in Lloseta.
During the operation, which has so far seized over 14.5 kilos of cocaine, 1 kilo of MDMA and 3.5 kilos of hashish, officers also found over €60,000 in cash stashed in a car in Mallorca.
Once their method of transportation was revealed to authorities, the Guardia Civil carried out a search of a vehicle departing from the Port of Alcúdia, finding 7 kilos of cocaine hidden inside a secret compartment.
