Four arrested for drug trafficking in Oliva


THE Guardia Civil recently arrested four people in Oliva on suspicion of drug trafficking.

An investigation was initiated earlier this month after officers detected an increase in the sale of drugs across Oliva, especially nearby leisure facilities.

The investigation resulted in the arrest of four men – three Spaniards and one Moroccan aged between 33 and 54 – who were responsible for obtaining drugs to later be sold at street-level.

Having gathered enough evidence, officers entered two houses – seizing 40 kilograms of pressed hashish, one kilogram of marijuana buds, a car, equipment used to package the drugs, six mobile phones and €840 in cash.

The four arrested await trial in Gandia.
