The gang transported weapons from Poland to sell on the black market in Spain.

A network of Polish-registered vehicles with hidden compartments travelled between the two countries using different drivers.

The group exported marijuana and other drugs to Poland and returned with guns and ammunition.

A finca in La Pobla de Vallbona was being converted into an indoor marijuana farm with the capacity to grow 1,500 plants.
