Four British men have been arrested during police raids in Mijas and Marbella on the Costa del Sol for their alleged involvement in drug trafficking and membership of a criminal organisation.

During searches, police investigators seized 937 kilograms of hashish and 53 kilograms of ecstasy from a house in Mijas used by the gang.

The joint National Police and Guardia Civil operation began at the end of September last year when officers intercepted a package sent from Fuengirola that contained half a kilogramme of cocaine.

Investigators claim they have dismantled the criminal organisation which shipped drugs to central European countries, mainly to the Netherlands, travelling by road through France.

During a total of three searches on the Costa del Sol, five cars, several mobile phones and 1,390 euros in cash were also seized.
