Anti-drug swoops leads to police purge

THE anti-drug chief of Malaga’s Guardia Civil has been arrested in an ever-widening operation against drug trafficking in the province.

The arrest of high-ranking officer on Friday follows the detainment of two Guardia Civil officers in Mijas and Cordoba earlier this week.

A former Guardia Civil officer has also been arrested.

Guardia Civil’s internal investigators began tracking the suspects after a big drug seizure near Marbella on September 21.

The seizure pointed to corrupt supporters within Andalucia’s police force.
