The Civil Guard of the Fiscal Section and of Borders of the Port of Light has arrested, last Monday, May 30, two people, a 32-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman, for the alleged authorship of a drug trafficking crime, when they tried to embark with one of the shipping companies that cover the route to the island of Tenerife with 30 kilos of hashish hidden in the trunk.
As a result of the joint surveillance work that exists in the fight against drug trafficking by the Fiscal Section and Borders of the Civil Guard and the Customs Surveillance Service of the Tax Agency, during a control of people and vehicles, the intuition of the agents motivated them to carry out the appropriate checks in one of the cars that proceeded to board the island of Tenerife, in the case of a couple traveling with a vehicle of rental.
During the performance, the Civil Guard analyzed the behavior of the passengers, who were elusive and nervouss, which is why a more exhaustive inspection was carried out on the vehicle, locating 5 vacuum-packed bags, hidden in the passenger compartment intended to house the spare tire. The packages located were wrapped in brown packing tape, the agents suspecting that it could be some type of drug. After opening one of the packages, which contained various brown resinous pills inside that, as corroborated by the narcotics test to which the substance was subjected, it was hashish.
Total thirty (30) kilograms of hashish pollen were seizeds, scattered in packages of about 5 kilos, the Civil Guard immediately proceeding to arrest these two people for a crime against public health. The detainees, together with the seized drug, have been made available to the judicial authority; the Court of duty of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria has decreed the entry into preventive detention of both.
