Police in Granada have seized three tons of hashish and arrested seven drugs traffickers in the biggest drug operation on the Costa Tropical so far this year.
At 05:00, a boat was detected by the SIVE surveillance unit. The vessel was monitored for about two hours, weaving an erratic course before heading to playa de las Azucenas in Motril.
As the vessel was being unloaded, Guardia Civil and Marine Rescue officers made their move. The traffickers fled as soon as they noticed the officers and in the ensuing chase, seven were apprehended.
