4,000 kilos of hashish camouflaged in chocolate bar wrappers seized in Seville

The Spanish Civil Guard has seized 4,000 kilos of hashish in two plots in the town of La Puebla del Río (Seville). The operation occurred at dawn at the end of April when agents from the Organic Unit of the Judicial Police of the Civil Guard of Algeciras observed a van driving through an area near the river carrying out maneuvers that raised suspicions.

The agents began following the van and verified that it had made two stops in two plots of the town, which made the operatives suspect that they could be two hashish nurseries.

In addition, they verified that there were several people providing security in said plots, and that, upon seeing the presence of uniformed agents, they hurriedly left the place across the field.

The civil guards organized a security device with the agents that culminated with the searches of the plots, where 114 bales of hashish, a plantation with 260 marijuana plants, two stolen vans, as well as numerous documentation of the perpetrators of the events were seized. .

The seized hashish weighed 4,000 kilos, much of it dosed in small quantities with candy bar wrappers.
