Spain's Guardia Civil police officers, as part of their regular operations carried out for the prevention of drug trafficking, have arrested two people on the Costa del Sol for an offence against public health.

The pair were detained at the Calahonda tolls on the AP-7 motorway, after officers searched a vehicle that had aroused their suspicions, the force said in a statement.

The two occupants of the vehicle, a man and a middle-aged woman, were identified and the vehicle was inspected. Two large bags containing a total of 265 bars of hashish weighing 28.264 kilograms were found hidden inside the boot and the pair were arrested for an offence against public health.

The detainees were handed over to the courts in Fuengirola, which ordered the man to be remanded in custody.
