axarquia drugsOVER three tons of hash were seized and 16 people arrested in an Axarquia drug raid.

In the culmination of longstanding investigations ‘Gui’ and ‘Galium’ the Guardia Civil seized two separate drug cartels in Torrox and Rincon de la Victoria.

The first operation seized 40 bundles of hash, two 12m long powerful rib boats and three 4×4 vehicles and the second intercepted 76 drug bales weighing 2,350kg.

The now-disbanded gang was based in Ceuta and had set up a complex network across the Axarquia.
