60 detained in drug crackdown
Cocaine can be mixed with things like cornstarch, talcum powder, or flour to increase profits.

OFFICERS from the National Police have completed their Dobladillo drugs operation, arresting more than 60 suspects.

Agents concluded the operation after catching a drug trafficking family gang of six, one of whom was a minor.

The investigation began in June, following a tip-off of cocaine and heroin dealing by a family in the La Limones area, according to the Provincial Police Station.

On investigating further, officers were able to confirm the narcotics were being sold out of a home and a woman and her children were being helped by relatives to prepare and sell the drugs.

On searching the home, National Police officers found and seized 25 grams of pure cocaine, 11.10 grams of cocaine ready for sale and €695 in various currencies. The six involved have been arrested for their alleged involvement in criminal gang membership and drug trafficking.
