THE drug traffickers who rescued the Guardia Civil officers chasing them after their boats collided have been locked up without bail. 

A Torremolinos court today ordered that the four men be held indefinitely ahead of their trial.

They are accused of a crime against public health, belonging to a criminal group and of causing damages and injuries.

It comes after the Guardia Civil patrol boat gave chase to the men’s semi-rigid vessel off the coast of Mijas on Friday.

However during the pursuit, the boats collided, causing the three police officers to fall overboard.

The policemen’s boat became ‘out of control’ and began circling them, very nearly hitting them.

It was then that the crew of a Malaga Air Unit helicopter circling above ordered the drug smugglers to help the three men.

Following the unwritten laws of the seas, the drug traffickers came to the agents’ rescue.

No one was harmed but the four traffickers were arrested after authorities recovered more than 80 bundles of hashish, weighing more than three tonnes.

The fact that they rescued the policemen did not help their cause, authorities told press today.
