A MAN has been sentenced to three years in prison after transporting hash on a jet ski to a Manilva beach, and then crashing into a jetty.

The incident happened on September 12, 2017 when the defendant and an accomplice, each on a jet ski, headed to playa de Tubalita.

They deposited 12 packages of hash, while other people waited in the sand to pick them up.

This was the moment in which the police sprang into action, although the accomplice managed to flee the scene on foot without capture.

The defendant tried to escape on his jet ski but collided with a breakwater and was seriously injured, requiring hospital treatment.

The haul of hash amounted to 346,018 grams, worth €2 million on the black market.
