POLICE have arrested 40 people in a string of coordinated drug busts in Cadiz.
Hundreds of law enforcement flooded the coastal city of Sanlucar de Barrameda at around 05:30am today, in a joint operation between the Guardia Civil, the Policia Nacional and customs officers.
The notorious ringleader of a hashish trafficking operation between Morocco and Spain was arrested nearby.
The mastermind, known locally as Antonio ‘El Tomate,’ was detained in his home in a rural area just outside Sanlucar de Barrameda.
Police previously arrested him in 2011 in the same area.
