Agents of the National Police have seized 700 kilos of hashish at a toll booth on the AP-7 motorway when they were transported using the Go Fast method, that is, using the van to transport the drug and the shuttle car to open the way, circulating at great speed. speed and without stopping until its arrival at the final destination.
As reported this Sunday by the uniformed men in a statement, the two drivers of the vehicles, which were transporting the drug from Sanlúcar de Barrameda to France, have been arrested in the province of Malaga. The agents have intervened two rental vehicles; a van that contained the narcotic substance and a car that acted as a shuttle as well as 1,290 euros.
The investigations began at the beginning of September when the agents learned of the existence of a French criminal organization that was presumably preparing to send a large consignment of drugs from Cádiz to France. After several efforts, the investigators identified two French citizens – who had arrived in the Malaga municipality of Torremolinos at the end of August – allegedly connected to other people linked to organizations dedicated to hashish trafficking.
The agents detected how those investigated traveled to the province of Cádiz in a van and in a rental car, delivering the van in Jerez to third parties. These went to a scattered area of Sanlúcar de Barrameda to later return it to the detainees who started the march towards Malaga in the two vehicles.
The fact that the passenger car circulated several kilometers ahead of the van showed that the drug had been delivered and that the transport would be carried out using the Go Fast method.
Finally, with the aim of inspecting the van, the agents set up a police device at the AP-7 toll booth, near Manilva. The driver, upon detecting the police presence, tried to skip the control by accessing a toll lane that was disabled, although he was intercepted by other police officers who were providing support. At the same time, other agents stopped the shuttle vehicle at the height of San Pedro Alcántara.
After inspecting both vehicles, the investigators located 21 bundles of hashish inside the van, which weighed approximately 700 kilos, which is why the drivers were arrested.
The French authorities informed the National Police that those arrested had multiple records for robbery, illegal possession of weapons and drug trafficking, among others. On the other hand, the investigation remains open in order to identify other possible people related to the events.
