A WANTED drug trafficker has been arrested in Mallorca after posting a video to his Facebook page.

In the recording, Jose GB offers a €10,000 reward for information on the man that beat up his nine-year-old son in Palma’s Poligono de Levant.

With his son sat beside him, Jose GB claimed that a man between 27 and 35-years-old assaulted his child when he was walking home from school. 

“He kicked my boy, grabbed him by the neck, slapped him twice and left him dizzy,” said Jose GB in the video.

He continued: “If someone knows who he is and helps me locate him, I will give them €10,000 in cash.”

Unbeknown to the suspected drug trafficker, Policia Nacional investigators were actively monitoring his social media accounts.

This was because Jose GB was wanted for his role in running a large-scale marijuana plantation inside a flat in the La Soledat district.

HAUL: Over 200 marijuana plants were discovered

In July of this year, the property was raided with officers finding more than 200 plants.

Evidence suggested that Jose GB was responsible for growing and selling the narcotic to hundreds of dealers across the island.

However, he had fled his home with his family before police were able to arrest him.

After sharing the video on Facebook, police were able to track his location which was pinned to the Son Hugo district.

Officers quickly moved to the site to arrest him.

He has been charged with drug trafficking and evading police.

The arrest comes as Guardia Civil carried out a total of 56 raids on marijuana plantations this year, seizing more than 112,500 plants.

This included a bust on a huge marijuana plantation hidden in a secret bunker at a property in Palma.

Captured on camera, the ensuing raid uncovered some 2,000 cannabis plants in an advanced stage of growth.

A criminal gang allegedly responsible for supplying cocaine to the majority of drug dealers in Mallorca was also dismantled this year.

As part of ‘Operation Gunpowder,’ 16 ‘members’ of the organisation were arrested in multiple dawn raids.

The detainees allegedly introduced large consignments of high-purity cocaine from South America which were then cut at a makeshift laboratory installed inside a flat in Palma.
