The Spanish Civil Guard has proceeded to arrest 2 people and seize 12 kilos of cocaine, some of which had the seal of authenticity of the Jalisco Cartel in New Mexico in the province of Ávila.
This intervention is the result of a device that the Civil Guard established, within the framework of the Comprehensive Operational Plan against hashish trafficking from Morocco (TELOS), when the Civil Guard was carrying out a control on the AP6, as it passed through the Ávila province, where they intercepted a vehicle occupied by two people.
Once these people were identified, a search of the interior of the vehicle was carried out, where a total of 12 packages with compact whitish substance were found hidden between the rear seats of the vehicle.
Of the 12 packages that weighed 12 kilograms, 5 bore a seal that could belong to the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG), another 5 sealed with the anagram of a commercial brand of high-end vehicles and the other 2 sealed with numbering 222.
Jalisco New Generation Cartel
It should be noted that the CJNG (Cártel de Jalisco Nueva Generación) seal belongs to the most dangerous criminal organization in Mexico, dedicated to drug trafficking and arms trafficking. This criminal group is the priority objective of the Mexican authorities and the United States.
Once the substance was seized, the agents proceeded to carry out the narcotest, giving a positive result in cocaine with indications of a high degree of purity.
For this reason, the agents proceeded to the arrest of these two people and the intervention of cocaine.
From the investigations carried out, it is presumed that the drug could be destined for some point in the Autonomous Community of Galicia.
