TWO suspected drug peddlers are under arrest after Guardia Civil pulled over their vehicle on the A7 motorway by the Ballabona in Huercal-Overa.
Officers carrying our controls on passengers and vehicles spotted a car passenger tossing a number of packets out the window, which turned out to be a kilo of hash and two bags of cocaine for personal use.
The pair, identified as 24-year old J.A.G.B. and 23-year old J.M.D.L.T.H., admitted that when they realised the officers wanted them to stop their vehicle they panicked and decided to get rid of the drugs.
The two now face drug trafficking charges.
