Guardia Civil have arrested a man and a woman of Dominican origin – both 25-years-old – for a crime against public health (drug trafficking) as they were found to be selling cocaine from their home in Calpe.
At the end of January this year, the Guardia Civil of Calpe detected the address as a possible point of sale of drugs. After installing a surveillance device, they soon realised that the address in question was indeed a very active point of sale. The duo had an ‘established schedule’ of distribution with a continuous flow of customers arriving at their property every day between 5.00pm and 11.00pm.
Once sufficient evidence had been obtained, Guardia Civil agents raided the property with the support of agents from the Citizen Security Unit (USECIC) in Alicante and the Cinologica Service.
A total of 62.70 grams of cocaine, €6,218 in cash, 6 mobile phones, a tablet and a laptop were seized in the raid, along with 310 grams of powder with which the couple ‘cut’ the cocaine – reducing its purity and tools to manipulate and prepare the drug for sale – wires, plastic bags and a precision scale.
The man has already been put in prison on court order, while the woman is on provisional release with charges.
