The National Police have carried out searches in two houses located in Torremolinos for drug trafficking and have arrested the person allegedly responsible for his suspected involvement in a crime against public health. The investigated had two homes that he used, one of them as a storage place for the bulk of the narcotics and another where he was taking the drugs that were already prepared, according to the Malaga Provincial Police Station.
