Under the catchily-titled ‘Operation American Stuff’, investigators noticed an increase in the illicit traffic of high-end vehicles from the United States through shipping containers.

This led to the Civil Guard and the Tax Agency stepping up their control, identification, and inspection of containers coming to or passing through the Algeciras container terminal.

The agents confirmed that the vehicles had been stolen in the United States, and the authorities are working together to continue the investigations.
