National Police agents have broken up an organization that transported cocaine in refrigerated trucks to Manilva. Four people have been arrested and 60 kilos of cocaine have been seized in a warehouse in the Las Dehesillas industrial park, Manilva, where the group received drug shipments.

To access the drug, hidden in the vehicles, they were forced to use two hydraulic jacks.

The investigation began last July when the police found evidence of the existence of this organized crime group, bringing large amounts of cocaine into Spain.

Sources explained that the first investigation lead to the discovery that the group comprised members from the Netherlands and the UK who lived in the provinces of Malaga and Cadiz.

The use of refrigerated trucks to transport the drugs were meant to convey a semblance of normalcy and avoid suspicion, according to the National Police. Investigators also found that the organization was preparing an imminent shipment of cocaine, which led to this operation to seize both the gang and the shipment of drugs.
