Frigiliana couple arrested for drug trafficking

A BRITISH couple have been arrested for drug trafficking in Frigiliana.

National Police raided the couple’s house on the outskirts of the town, after a tip off about their activities.

Inside police found 152 marijuana plants on a camouflaged terrace, as well as 775 grams of amphetamines in a plastic bag in the fridge.
They also impounded a four wheel drive vehicle as well as a personal computer and mobile phone.

After the raid it was discovered that the man had a European detention order against him for drug trafficking.

The 34-year-old was part of an important criminal gang in Gloucestershire and had been detained with conspiracy to produce a class B drug, the illegal possession of firearms and the illegal extraction of electricity.

Given a conditional release, he fled to Spain, with his wife also wanted in the UK for the same offences. The couple have been remanded in custody.

  1. It is not illegal here to grow your own for your own consumption but it is illegal to grow in mass to sell. There are numerous shops around that supply the home grower with tools of the trade. This was a bit shocking to me at first but now not so much. Always a tough topic, like anything you have those who are responsible and those who are irresponsible wrecks.

  2. Christine, it will be illegal if the latest laws get passed (I assume by “here” you mean Spain?). Drugs can no longer be grown for personal consumption under the new laws.
