POLICE in the Balearic Islands have smashed a national drug operation and arrested 33 people.
A two-year Guardia Civil probe revealed that a north African gang was selling cocaine, MDMA and hash in towns throughout Mallorca.
A Dutch group in mainland Spain supplied the drugs, which a driver smuggled through the Port of Alcudia using secret cavities underneath his car.
As well as drugs, officers, working under ‘Operation BUBADU’ seized €240,000 in cash, €38,600 of which was buried at a farm in the town of Muro.
Police also recovered knives, fake pistols and shotguns, and several phones and laptops.
In total 14.5 kilos of cocaine, 1 kilo of MDMA, and 3.5 kilos of hash were seized by the Guardia Civil.
The investigation, opened in 2017 saw cops make searches of 28 properties, five garages and a commercial building, across Mallorca, Barcelona, ??Lleida and Huesca.
