Spain seizes 30 tonnes of hashish hidden in 4 sailing boats

Spanish authorities on Wednesday said that they’ve seized 30 tonnes of hashish hidden in four sailing boats, in their biggest drug bust at sea.

The police said that nine Bulgarian and Russian citizens were arrested in the raid.

“The logistical capacity of the Bulgarian criminal organizations’ top leaders engaged in drug trafficking in recreational vessels has been hit, preventing new routes from emerging or that they take advantage of the pandemic,” police and tax authorities said in a statement.

Earlier, 4.6 tonnes of hashish were seized in two sailing boats from the same criminal group.
