Woman arrested during a police check on the N-340 in Almuñecar in possession of cocaine and heroin

As reported by the Guardia Civil this Saturday, February 26, a 50-year-old woman was arrested during an anti-drug police check on the N-340, in the municipality of Malaga in Almuñecar. She was found in possession of 22 doses of cocaine and one dose of heroin.

The woman was arrested as an alleged perpetrator of a crime against public health, for drug trafficking.

In a press release, the gendarmerie explained that the arrest took place at Km319 of the N-340. The inmate was traveling as a passenger in a vehicle when he was arrested during a routine drug check.

Officers conducted an identity check on the 49-year-old driver and found he was driving without a valid licence. He was indicted for offense of violation of road safety.

Seeing that the woman was becoming increasingly restless in the passenger seat, she finally asked permission to exit the vehicle. At this point, the cops brought in their sniffer dog, Juper, to inspect the car. He immediately tagged the woman.

A subsequent search uncovered a bag containing the 22 doses of cocaine, one dose of heroin and €220 in cash presumably from the retail sale of the drug. The detainee, together with the drug and the investigator, were transferred to the Almuñecar barracks of the Guardia Civil to investigate the proceedings.
