Seven people were arrested and another three were investigated for crimes against public health, belonging to a criminal organisation, fraud, and falsifying documents.
The police investigation began at the start of the year, when Guardia Civil officers discovered intelligence about some foreigners who had acquired a property in the municipality of Carratraca that could be used as a marijuana growing house.
