Spain: Guardia Civil thwarts a 3500-kilo haul of hashish after a tense vessel chase

The Guardia Civil has seized 3500 kg of hashish in waters close to the province of Huelva after carrying out a high-speed pursuit of a semi-rigid vessel of the type normally used to smuggle drugs by sea.


The operation was initiated when the Guardia Civil’s 062 Operational Coordination Centre detected the presence of a semi-rigid boat with several occupants off the beach of Nueva Umbria, carrying on board a large number of bales heading towards the coast, allegedly with the intention of smuggling in that area.

A coordinated interception operation was immediately set up involving civil guards from the Judicial Police Unit of the Command, the Provincial Maritime Service and an Air Service helicopter, the Guardia Civil confirmed on Sunday, October 23.

The drug traffickers, after detecting the presence of the Guardia Civil, gave up their intention and headed south again to evade the agents, but they did not succeed in their task as they were located some 20 miles from the coast by the helicopter and the Maritime Service boat. At that point, the tracking of the vessel began, which lasted for about 40 minutes.
