National Police officers have dismantled four indoor greenhouses and seized 1,500 marijuana plants in an operation covering Malaga and Granada provinces. Police arrested twenty people, seized 40 kilos of cannabis and seized property and assets worth over a million euros.
The operation also led to the apprehension of a French citizen of Arabic origin, wanted for a murder in Estepona back in January 2013.
The group had links to a gang based in Estepona and La Linea which was being investigated for smuggling hashish from Morocco to Spain for distribution in France. This then led to the growing operation and the subsequent arrests, three of which were in Estepona.
