POLICE aborted an operation that was planning to send 400 kilos of cocaine for distribution in the UK.
Although the cocaine was brought by boat to Galicia, the Policia Nacional later intercepted the drugs at a warehouse on the Corredor del Henares industrial estate in Madrid.
According to the Policia Nacional, their investigations confirmed information that a joint Spanish-British organisation had smuggled an “important amount” of cocaine into the country via Galicia.
It was taken by road to Madrid where it was kept in the warehouse while the group waited for the right time to move it, police sources said.
On inspecting the packages of cocaine, police were surprised to find that some were stamped the letter M while on others the logo was handwritten.
“Possibly these were changed by the organisation itself,” the same police sources commented. “But it is most unusual to find a logo that is drawn and not stamped in relief.”
The investigation remains open, as no arrests have yet been made and police are tracking down the members of the group.
