The Guardia Civil has arrested a hundred people and seized more than 5,000 kilos of hashish and 230 kilos of marijuana buds in an international operation against drug trafficking centred on the Seville town of Dos Hermanas and the marinas in La Línea de la Concepción and Puerto de La Duquesa.

This is operation “MOPA”, against the gang whose members supplied other criminal organizations with boats, fuel, food and crews, according to a statement by the Guardia Civil this Saturday.

The investigation began when it was learned that an organization was launching boats from the Guadalquivir River, specifically by people belonging to the well-known Monparlet clan, which also engaged in logistical tasks of hiding high-speed boats.

A branch of the organization was dedicated to petaqueo (supplying fuel to the drug RHIBs), and had small recreational boats that, from the ports of Atunara, Sotogrande and La Duquesa, set out to supply fuel and food and, if necessary, make the crew changes and thus restart the hashish route to Morocco.

During the operation, the agents have seized 1,170 kilos of hashish in Matalascañas (Huelva), 3,240 kilos in Adra (Almería) and 330 kilos in La Línea (Cádiz), revealing the powerful infrastructure they had to carry out operations all over the coasts of Andalucia.

One hundred people have been arrested and 5,040 kilos of hashish and 230 kilos of marijuana buds have been seized, and a replica rifle, a taser gun and five vehicles have been seized, including two trucks, as well as navigation and computer equipment and communication, and documentation.
