The Guardia Civil has arrested two people for illegal drug trafficking
The Guardia Civil has arrested two people for illegal drug trafficking.

The Guardia Civil of the Almería Command intercepted nearly 9000 sachets of ibuprofen 600 mg during a preventive operation. The vehicle was travelling on the A7 at the La Ballabona area, in the municipality of Huércal-Overa, and the two occupants of the vehicle were arrested as perpetrators of a crime against public health, for drug trafficking.

This intervention is the result of the different preventive inspections carried out by the Guardia Civil of the Almeria Command in the development of its different functions during the provision of public safety services that are established in the control of the roads.

This action began when a patrol of the Guardia Civil of the Almeria Command, on duty on the A7 motorway, passing through the municipality of Huércal-Overa, noticed evasive movements of a van when detecting the police vehicle, which led the Guardia Civil personnel to indicate to the driver to stop.

Once the two occupants of the van had been identified, they were asked to open the back of the van, but were refused as they were only transporting bathroom equipment, but they provided their invoices and, after being asked again, agreed to do so, at which point the officers found numerous packages containing envelopes of ibuprofen, bicycles and a moped among boxes of taps, They were unable to provide evidence of its legal origin, so, due to the risk that the circulation of these products could pose to the public, they proceeded to their intervention and the arrest of the occupants as perpetrators of a crime against public health.

As a result of this action, the Guardia Civil de la Comandancia de Almería intercepted in Huércal-Overa nearly 9000 sachets of ibuprofen 600mg, during the inspection of the vehicle in which they were being transported and arrested two men, residents of El Ejido, as perpetrators of a crime against public health for drug trafficking.

The investigation is still open and further action is not ruled out.

The proceedings, together with the detainees and the material seized, have been handed over to the Huércal-Overa Magistrate’s Court on duty.
