A COUPLE in their twenties are under arrest for using a storeroom in Almeria city for selling and consuming drugs.
Police discovered the drug den in the Cortijo Grande area of the city after local residents reported a violent argument between a man and woman in the early hours of the morning. When officers arrived at the scene they discovered the woman had cut and seriously injured herself on the arm with a knife and needed medical attention. The patrol alerted the medical services who took her to Torrecardenas hospital.

The pair, identified as J.G.D.G and O.R., have been charged with crimes against public health.
