Twelve arrested as Spanish police seize three tonnes of cocaine


Spanish police seized three tonnes of cocaine and arrested 12 suspected drugs from smugglers of Britain, the Netherlands and Spain nationalities.
The drugs were recovered in the north-western Galicia region, and are thought to have been be bound for a smuggling ring in the southern Costa Del Sol.

This is the largest seizure in the region for 17 years, police said.

Spain is a major entry point into Europe for drug smugglers from South America.

Last month Spanish police discovered more than a tonne of cocaine disguised as wood and charcoal arriving on a shipment from Colombia.

In November, they announced the arrest of British man Robert Dawes, accused of running Europe’s largest drug-trafficking network.
