Seven arrested and 800 doses seized

SEVEN residents of Huercal Olvera of different nationalities have been arrested for dealing cocaine. Eight hundred doses of highly pure cocaine were seized together with €7,000 in cash, 1,000g of cutting materials and two vehicles.

Investigation began in June after the police heard of a criminal gang which allegedly provided small dealers. The main suspect is a Colombian citizen who posed a special challenge because he had worked as a police agent in his country of origin and was well acquainted with investigation techniques.

The gang had several homes including a small lab to cut, press and pack the drug. Three gang members have been sent to prison by court order and the rest were released on bail.
