1,557 kilo drugs haul

Operation ‘Mar Negro’ has resulted in the seizure of 1,557 kilos of hashish on two pleasure boats based in Nerja.

The investigation began last summer when the two boats left Nerja on a fishing trip. An inflatable craft, suspected of carrying drugs, was detected in the Alborán sea and heading for the Málaga coast. Police monitored the situation and saw the small craft make contact with the two pleasure craft before unloading bales of hashish.

A total of five people, all with prior records, have been detained.
