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.

  1. Very funny Carlos, the idea of bowing before public servants is highly amusing! Mind you maybe that’s what’s missing from my relationships with spanish public servants? That or a dearth of fat brown envelopes.
