A SPANISH gang that allegedly sold stolen tablets of male impotence drug Viagra has been arrested by police.
Three employees of a medicine distribution company are accused of stealing boxes of the drug intended for chemists around Granada and selling them on the black market.
The three are also alleged to have stolen and subsequently sold pills of Levitra, which like Viagra is a sex stimulant drug, and anabolic steroids.
Officials from Granada based pharmacy company Hefagra reported to police earlier this month amounts of their drugs were being distributed from their warehouses and not turning up at chemists around the province.
Police have confiscated boxes of the stolen drugs from the homes of the three detainees, who have been accused of theft and public health offences.
Viagra is in high demand on the black market in Spain due to the drug not being available over the counter in the country’s chemists.
