A RESIDENT in the area called to complain and denounce the partygoers. The armed institute has outlined that the party was in full swing at 10.30am on Saturday when they received an anonymous call from a nearby resident letting them know that there was an illegal party going on in an old horse stable in the Albatera industrial area.
Various Guardia Civil and Local Police patrol cars were dispatched to the scene and upon their arrival they could see around 10 vehicles parked outside a tent. Police forces could hear loud and heavy music playing from inside the tent.
When they went inside they found eight men enjoying the environment, the music, the club lighting and illegal narcotics like marihuana, hashish and cocaine.
The stable was equipped with a bar full of drinks, a pool table, a sound system, lighting and a parking lot. However, when they asked for a licence to justify the premises they did not have one.
Ultimately, eight people were sanctioned for not complying with the royal decree issued by the government to contain the spread of Covid-19. Four of those individuals were also sanctioned for possession of illegal narcotics and on top of these sanctions there was an administrative infraction for using this unlicensed space for parties.
