Castellar heroin ring busted

CASTELLAR (Agencies / Photo: from Guardia Civil video) A drug specialising in heroin traffic and based in Castellar was busted yesterday, according to a press release from the Guardia Civil. With ramifications in Algeciras, La Línea and San Roque, as well as in Madrid and Palma de Mallorca, Operation Almenara concluded with the arrest of eight people, confiscation of 814 grammes of heroin, other drugs, cash, computers, mobile phones and arms. The gang had been under watch, in an operation headed by the GC in Algeciras, since December but it was only in April that a man of North African origin was seen arriving from Madrid by bus and being handed a parcel of the drug. He was arrested at the Algeciras bus station. (See the full story on CampoPulse)
