11 people have been arrested in San Pedro after police seized a huge quantity of drugs.  One of the men is a wanted British drug baron.  Police found cannabis, cocaine, guns, cash, signal jammers, and mobile phones at the property close to Marbella.

A National Police spokesperson said “During the operative to identify the members of the criminal organisation, the police located a group of people from Britain and Ireland and confirmed they included the gang leader and another four members of the organisation.

“They were arrested and the gang leader’s home in San Pedro searched.  Officers seized 150 packs of cannabis resin, a kilo of cocaine, 208,000 euros (£186,000), and a pistol with ammunition which was hidden in the secret compartment of a wardrobe. The last phase of the operation led to the arrest of another four members of the organisation.

“Three searches led to the seizure of 10,400 euros (£9,335) and 312 kilos of cannabis.”
