810 kilos of hashish bound for Torrevieja in a multi-million euro yacht, has been impounded by Alicante Civil Guard.

“The 15-metre-long vessel was sailing from Cabo de Palos in Murcia and heading for Torrevieja bay,” said a Civil Guard spokesperson.

It is the latest drugs bust following incidents, including the imprisonment of four people in December, when they were connected with 2.4 tonnes of hashish heading for Torrevieja in February 2020, after their yacht sank in the waters of Cabo de Palos.
