The National Police has dismantled in Marbella a ‘coffee shop’ allegedly engaged in the sale of narcotic substances. In the operation, the person in charge of the premises, a 35-year-old man of Dutch nationality, was arrested for his alleged involvement in a drug trafficking crime. In the registry, they have been seized 500 grams of marijuana, 200 of hashish, joint cigarettes, sweets and cakes with THC, 460 euros in cash and other elements used for the preparation and distribution of the drug.
The investigations began as a result of several information received by the agents that pointed to an establishment in Marbella where the distribution of narcotic drugs would be carried out, as well as the consumption of such substances in the premises itself.
The first inquiries led the agents to a place in Puerto Banús, of the so-called ‘coffee shop’. The researchers detected a movement of people who came to the premises and there they supposedly acquired and consumed the drug. In the vicinity of the place, the agents carried out several acts of apprehension of narcotics among the clients.
After several efforts, the Police identified the alleged person in charge of the business, a middle-aged man of Dutch nationality, who was arrested for his alleged responsibility in a crime against public health.
At the time of carrying out the operation, the agents located inside three clients consuming narcotic substances, without keeping the health security measures due to COVID-19.
