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.
