  • The Guardia Civil seized a "considerable amount" of illegal substances after intercepting a vehicle in the Estepona area

The Guardia Civil arrested ten people early on Wednesday morning after intercepting a vehicle that was carrying a "considerable" amount of hashish.

Officers cordoned off Estepona's Avenida Andalucía during the operation and some locals said they were scared to leave their houses.

The raid was part of an anti-drug trafficking operation.

More illegal substances were seized later in the day at a local industrial estate.
