Two Guardia Civil police detained over drug trafficking

Two Guardia Civil police were among twelve people who have been arrested in an operation against drug trafficking in El Ejido, Almeria. Those detained are thought to be involved in trying to transport nine tonnes of cannabis hidden on a fishing boat.

These arrests follow other incidents involving Guardia Civil police. One last month when at least five Guardia Civil police were implicated in the robbery of 500 kilos of cocaine in Barcelona.

In April this year, four Guardia Civil police were also implicated in a drug trafficking network in Navarra.
