SPAIN’S National Police have arrested 16 people following an 18-month investigation and have seized 14,500 litres of chemical products needed to manufacture drugs.
Officers located and dismantled ‘one of the largest synthetic drug laboratories in Spain’ as they seized the chemicals, which could have been used to process more than 1,000 kg of amphetamine and MDMA.
The revealing police footage shows officers intercepting chemical products and the various paraphernalia used to synthesise drugs, including tanks, cooking units and even recipes with scientific diagrams.
Police described their find as ‘a laboratory for the large-scale use of synthetic drugs’ and it comes just days after Police in Malaga also discovered six tonnes of cocaine disguised amongst bananas.
This latest investigation also seized 90kg of marijuana in France, 145 kg of marijuana and 261 kg of hashish in the United Kingdom and 199 kg of marijuana in Spain.
The drug and infrastructure haul comes after police began their investigations in May last year, working in collaboration with the Tax Agency, the UK’s National Crime Agency and the French Police Nationale.
