During the last two weeks, as part of 'Operación Carteia', 28 interventions in the Campo de Gibraltar area (Cadiz) have led to 58 arrests and 5.626 tonnes of hashish being seized.

In Malaga province, meanwhile, 137 kilos of hashish, three boats and a stolen vehicle have been seized, and two people arrested.
