A Malaga cocaine gang has been arrested using cars at false bottom after half a dozen searches were carried out in the provinces of Malaga, Cordoba, Jaen and Toledo. As part of this investigation, the National Police arrested ten people for their alleged involvement in drug trafficking offenses and their membership in a criminal organization.
Twelve double-bottom cars were seized in the raid. Cars were used to transport goods. The Malaga cocaine gang didn’t just have vehicles. The national police also found 3.3 kilos of cocaine, more than 60,000 euros in cash, a hydraulic press, a heat sealer, tools for preparing and cutting the drug, among other paraphernalia. The case was taken over by the District Court of Marbella number 4.
The operation, known as Limpiadora, was carried out by agents attached to Udyco Costa del Sol and was initiated following reports of an organized gang based in the city of Malaga and Marbella. Investigations have shown that the Malaga cocaine gang was engaged in importing large shipments of cocaine for further marketing, at a lower level, by members of related organizations.
Outside the province of Malaga
As a result of the investigations carried out, investigators detected that the network had several addresses far from the coast of Malaga where members of the network “cooked” the drugs and hid them for later sale. Thus, the national police discovered how an apartment in the city of Illescas in Toledo had been transformed into a laboratory with all kinds of utensils for the preparation and cutting of the substance, in this case cocaine.
Continuing investigations, Udyco Costa del Sol agents intercepted, during two separate operations in Malaga and in the town of Cabra in the province of Cordoba, a false bottom car with 2 kilos of cocaine hidden inside and another vehicle of the same specification with 1 kilo of cocaine hidden. The police used the canine drug unit in the bust.
According to the investigation, the cocaine was stored in secure properties by members of the criminal group and then distributed in different consignments to different criminal organizations also involved in drug trafficking in the province of Malaga.
