Arrested in Malaga six drug traffickers who are experts in hiding large amounts of drugs in maritime containers

The Spanish Civil Guard has arrested in Malaga six members of an organization specialized in practicing double funds to hide drugs in maritime containers. They are considered perpetrators of the crimes of belonging to a criminal organization, drug trafficking, document falsification and identity theft.

The detainees were experts in hiding large amounts of drugs in sea containers to other European countries, mainly the United Kingdom.

This network had a farm in the town of Alhaurín de la Torre (Málaga) where they handled the containers to make a double bottom at the base of the structure to hide the drugs. To access it, it had to be uncoupled from the articulated truck platform.

Later they transported them to a warehouse in the Guadalhorce industrial estate in Malaga where they loaded the truck with legal merchandise and from there they sent it to the United Kingdom by sea.

On this farm they had numerous materials and machinery for the manufacture of double bottoms in mattresses, suitcases or pallets that they used to transport drugs and money.

They also had an X-ray scanner commonly used in airports and other official centers with which they inspected double bottoms to find out in advance if they could be detected.

One of the members of this organization has been arrested when he tried to flee with more than 150,000 euros in cash and various incriminating documents.

In the records carried out, the Civil Guard has seized 900 kilos of hashish, more than 40 kilos of marijuana buds, 13 vehicles and an indoor marijuana plantation with more than 1,700 plants has been dismantled.

In addition, the ringleader of this organization had a valid warrant from the United Kingdom justice and had numerous police records for similar events.
