Officers from the police arrested 21 people who allegedly belonged to one of the Costa del Sol’s largest hashish gangs.

The investigation saw 21 people arrested and 16 house searches in Algeciras, Los Barrios and Estepona, while police also confiscated four stolen vehicles, 40,000 packs of illegal tobacco and more than €18,000.

According to police, the organisation brought large quantities of hashish to Spain by boat from Morocco.

The gang tater transported the drugs in high-end vehicles to areas in Spain where it could be distributed to other European countries.

The police investigation began last year when the agents learned of the existence of a criminal organisation allegedly dedicated to the introduction of large quantities of hashish from Morocco to the Spanish coasts using drug boats.
