AN officer of the Guardia Civil has been arrested for allegedly passing on confidential information to a drugs gang.
Police claim the un-named civil guard, who belonged of the traffic division of the Salobreña Guardia Civil, told the gang the locations of random police road checks and the best methods of avoiding the SIVE marine patrol to transport cannabis from Morocco to the Costa Tropical.

Five other people, all believed to be members of the drugs gang, were also arrested after the year-long investigation.

All six were released after being charged with public health offences.
