Police seize 150 kilos of cocaine in Madrid car park bust

National Police officers in Madrid have seized 150 kilos of cocaine in a drugs bust carried out in a car park in Madrid. As reported by the Higher Headquarters of the Madrid Police in a press release today, Friday, October 29, two people have been arrested as a result. They were detained as they went to collect the stash.

This successful operation was launched after police became aware of a criminal network based in the Community of Madrid. Intelligence work revealed that a consignment of cocaine was going to be delivered to a car park in the city. Investigators had identified the individual in charge of the transport logistics for the group, a man of Moroccan origin, with a history of numerous criminal records.

Officers were also aware that this man would need the assistance of his partner to transport the illicit cargo, using a white van. The two criminals were subsequently detained in the car park as the drugs were about to be transported for distribution by transferring them to another vehicle.
