Marooned: the view across the Playa de Getares, near where the chase occurred
A CADIZ car chase ended with police discovering over 1,000 kilograms of hashish in a stolen vehicle.
Guardia Civil officers seized the stash after noticing the crew of a boat loading a sports utility vehicle with suspicious packages in the Algeciras area.
When the police investigated, the boat and vehicle fled, sparking a chase involving several National Police patrols from the Algeciras station.
When the SUV was eventually intercepted, police discovered 37 packages of hashish, weighing a total of 1,210 kilograms.
None of the vehicle’s occupants were apprehended, but police believe it had been stolen earlier this month in Coin.
Investigations are continuing.
