Spanish police seize underwater drones designed to carry drugs

The vessels would have allowed traffickers to smuggle 200kg of drugs across strait of Gibraltar, police say

The Guardian reports

Police in Spain have broken up a gang that was allegedly building semi-submersible drones each capable of ferrying up to 200kg of drugs across the strait of Gibraltar.

The Policía Nacional arrested eight people in Cádiz, Málaga and Barcelona, and said it was the first time they had come across underwater drones being used to smuggle drugs.

“Three unmanned underwater vehicles were recovered, one of them almost finished and two still under construction,” the force said in a statement. “They were due to be delivered to French narco-traffickers to be used to transport significant quantities of cocaine.”

Officers also seized 145kg of hashish, 8kg of marijuana, €157,370 in cash, and six large aerial drones that could cover a distance of 30km.
