In one of the records, a dump has been located where a cocaine laboratory had been installed, as reported by the Provincial Police Station through a statement. The facts are known by the Investigating Court number 5 of Torremolinos.
This police operation was initiated based on information received about a supposedly organized group, based in Torremolinos, which allegedly would be dedicating itself to the distribution, on a medium scale, of cocaine.

In addition, the investigations carried out led the agents to a building where the members of the criminal group kept the substance for later distribution.
