Four drug smugglers have been arrested in Cádiz in a joint Civil Guard and Customs operation which has seized more than a ton of cannabis from a boat boarded off Puerto de Santa María. Officers discovered 1.1 tons of the drug hidden in a false bottom built into the boat once the vessel, which was flying under the Spanish flag, was inspected in port.The two crew members taken into custody are both Spaniards, as are another two men arrested in Chipiona who are believed to have been the leaders of the smuggling operation.
A search of one of the suspects’ home in Sanlúcar de Barrameda revealed a stash of more than 8,000 € cash, together with three hunting rifles. Eleven mobile phones, a satellite phone and a car have also been impounded along with the boat.
