The drugs were taken from Sevilla’s police headquarters between 2006 and 2009 after being confiscated from criminals.
The officer Lars Sepulveda (above) replaced the drugs with packets of sugar and cement and sold them on with the help of drug dealer, Manuel Alonso Nunez.
Sepulveda was given a 17 year prison sentenced and fined €6.6 million for robbery, drug trafficking and money laundering.
Nunez was given a 15-year prison sentence.
The partners of both were also given shorter prison sentences for money laundering on their behalf.
It is one of dozens of similar cases of policemen being involved in drug dealing gangs around Andalucia over recent years.
