Guardia Civil officers raided a house in Mirador de Costalita, Cancelada, on Thursday morning. Inside they found the whole ground floor turned over for use as a drug warehouse, laboratory and space to grow marijuana.

Two Spanish nationals were arrested at the scene and 600 kilos of hashish seized, according to sources.

Neighbours, who had smelled marijuana, said it was strange that the house hadn't been discovered before. A house in Marbella was also searched.
