  • Three people from Lithuania were injured and they may be fined for moving large quantities of cash

An early-morning call out to an overturned camper van on the A-92 in Granada province yielded more than three injured Lithuanians. No other vehicle was involved but Guardia Civil officers were surprised to find one million euros in cash hidden inside. The vehicle was travelling to the Costa del Sol area and the driver tested positive for alcohol and drugs, according to sources.

As yet there has been no explanation as to why the two Lituanian men and one women were travelling with so much cash. However they could face a fine for failing to declare more than 10,000 euros being brought in from outside Spain (or 100,000 being moved within Spain).

One of the three injured is resident in Malaga.
