Cocaine shipment seized in Galicia

National Police have arrested four people and seized 103 kilos of cocaine hidden inside a shipment of bananas from Colombia which had arrived at the port of Marin, Galicia.

Raids were also carried out on homes in Pedre, A Illa de Arousa and Madrid and at a company located in Ribadumia (Pontevedra).

The drugs were hidden in five backpacks inside a container of bananas from Turbo in Colombia.

The police investigation began in July when officers learned that a major shipment of drugs was due to be sent to the port of Marin. It was being organised by a Spanish national with a history of similar operations.

Three of the arrests occurred in Galicia, one in Madrid.
