Children playing on beach find 17 kilos of hashish in can

Hashish trafficking is common in the area

A GROUP of children playing on the beach came across 17.2 kilos of hashish in an oil can on La Herradura Beach in Almuñecar, Granada.

The discovery was made yesterday afternoon, Sunday, February 28, when the children saw the oil can with an open cap which the sea had carried to shore. The local council reports that after they had looked at it, they alerted the Local Police who verified that there was a significant amount of hashish inside distributed in wrapped tablets.
Once the drum was picked up, it was verified at the police station that there were loose and unsealed pieces of hashish inside that reached a weight of 4.6 kilos and a further 22 small tablets that weighed more than 12.6 kilos, as reported by a spokesman for the Local Police, who pointed out that the strong east wind probably brought the drum to shore.
Once they had been weighed and a report written up, the drugs were transferred to the Guardia Civil headquarters for processing.

      This photo has nothing at all to do with this article. Far more hashish in photo than in report. Not even on a beach!

        Al thank you for your comment. As the caption explains there is a great deal of smuggling of hashish in the area hence the image.
