The Guardia Civil has dealt another blow to drug trafficking in Malaga province. More than 100 officers were involved in early-morning raids in Nerja this Wednesday (21 July), which resulted in the arrest of a least a dozen people.
Members of the force’s elite rapid action group (GAR) joined regular officers to carry out at least a dozen searches of homes and hospitality businesses in the Axarquia town.
The operation focused on the retail sale of drugs, mainly hashish and cocaine.
A police canine unit was also called on, and a Guardia Civil vehicle was parked near the Ermita de las Angustias taxi rank, to transfer the arrested people to the courts in Torrox.
The anti-drug operation remains open and more arrests have not been ruled out in the next few hours.
