TWO Spanish sailors have been jailed after being caught red handed using a patrol boat to smuggle €319,000 worth of drugs.
A military court in Sevilla heard that the two corporals were arrested in March 2008 through ‘Operacion Fragata’ launched by Ceuta’s National Police.
They had hidden 224 kilos of marihuana in a Spanish Navy P-114 patrol boat which was due to sail from Ceuta to San Fernando (Cadiz) for a boat-check inspection.
The drugs, hidden in seven sports bags, were smuggled on board when one of the men was on night guard duty.
JRCP, from Algeciras (Cadiz), and MFM, from Sevilla were jailed for five years each.
