The Guardia Civil of Almeria arrested a person in Cuevas del Almanzora, as the perpetrator of a crime against public health, after seizing 150 grams of marijuana buds hidden under the passenger seat of the car in which he was travelling.
These seizures are the result of the different actions carried out by the Guardia Civil of Almeria in the fight against the trafficking, processing and/or cultivation of narcotic substances in the province.
A patrol of Guardia Civil officers, while carrying out their own surveillance and prevention services in a hot area for the sale of drugs in the municipality of Cuevas del Almanzora, noticed that a person travelling in a medium-high range vehicle made a dodging manoeuvre when detecting police presence.
The officers, using the light signals of the patrol car, stopped the car, proceeded to identify the driver and after a discreet visual inspection of the vehicle, they found a bud of marijuana in the ashtray, so a more detailed search was carried out, in which two bags of marijuana buds weighing 150 grams were found hidden under the passenger seat.
Finally, as a result of this action, the Guardia Civil of Almeria arrested a 29-year-old man in Cuevas del Almanzora, resident of the town of Garrucha, as the perpetrator of a crime against public health, when they found 150 grams of marijuana buds hidden under a seat of the vehicle in which he was travelling.
The proceedings carried out by the Guardia Civil, together with the detainee and the drugs seized, were handed over to the Duty Court of Vera.
