Violent robbery gang falls in Alicante. The gang had even impersonated police officers and attacked other drug traffickers.
Officers from the National Police have brought to justice a gang that specialised in violent house burglaries. The gang was also known for drug trafficking in the Alicante and Denia area.
The police have dismantled a criminal organisation and arrested three people. The people were aged between 19 and 23 years old. The arrested people allegedly belonged to a gang based in Alicante. The gang is said to have specialised in drug trafficking and robberies.
The gang had made a significant profit from their illegal activities. They had also impersonated police officers and attacked other drug traffickers. The extremely dangerous gang were happy to use violence to try and avoid the police.
Officers carried out searches which proved to be extremely effective. They seized a top-of-the-range vehicle and a motorbike. Nearly 11,000 euros were also seized along with 3,900 kg of hashish. Jewellery and other items were also recovered during the searches.
As reported by Europa Press: “The three are accused of drug trafficking, membership of a criminal group, burglary, forgery of documents, offences against traffic safety and attacking a police officer. In addition, they have already been handed over to the Court of Instruction in Alicante, which has ordered one of them to be imprisoned.”
Officers from the judicial police in Alicante and Denia were involved in the investigation. Further arrests have not been ruled out.
