DRUGS heading to the night clubs and streets of Spain’s party island Ibiza have been seized by police.
Pill-popping partygoers will be denied their fix when the Ibiza scene reopens this summer after National Police and Guardia Civil took a haul of 100,000 ecstasy tablets in raids in Badalona, Sabadell and El Pla del Penedès just outside Barcelona.
Five people were arrested in the operation to bring down the Barcelona-based drug trafficking ring. Officers also confiscated 16kg of marihuana, 71kg of hashish, 1kg of ketamine, 6kg of crystal meth, a gun, four luxury cars and €150,000 in cash.
Police, who started their investigation in March, said the drug network had been shipping their wares out across Spain and other European countries. The investigation was sparked by tip offs about drug related activity at a warehouse in Sabadell and reports of suspect hiding drugs in false floors in vehicles.
National Police said they had since found out that the ecstasy tablets were heading to the Ibiza party scene.
