Dozen dockers nicked in drugs swoop

OVER a dozen staff working at Algeciras port have been arrested as part of a huge anti-drugs operation.

It comes after police seized a total of 213 kilos of cocaine from containers in the port.

The Guadia Civil investigation was launched last year, and in total 24 people were arrested.

Police also seized 26 vehicles and 42,000 euros in cash.

It was the second large haul of cocaine in just one week, with the seizure of 228 kilos of cocaine imported in crates of bananas.

A total of 12 people were arrested as drugs were found in bananas in Murcia, Malaga and Sagunto, Valencia.
