Cocaine sales points closed down
TWO retail sales points for cocaine have been closed down by police in the Giron district of Malaga (Costa del Sol).
Three Spaniards – two men and one woman between the ages of 34 and 26 – were arrested for alleged crimes against public health.
Police say that one of the men and the woman operated a system known as ‘tele-coco’ where clients would phone them an order.
The main suspect would then deliver it to a pre-arranged spot, usually accompanied by his children or his partner, who was also arrested. The third person detained is alleged to have supplied them with narcotics.
The investigation began as a result of information received by agents pointing to the main suspect – who has been remanded in custody – as a drugs supplier.
A surveillance operation showed he was very security conscious, often making ‘fake trips’ and using his children and partner as cover for his activities.
The surveillance operation also led them to a 30-year-old man who is alleged to be the source of the drugs.
Police finally moved in on the trio with two raids in Malaga. Officers seized 114 grams of rock cocaine, substances used to cut the drug, scales, two vehicles and €4,630 in cash.
