Continuing actions taking place across the country, the Local Police of Orihuela have seized 1.5 kilos of marijuana and 400 grams of hashish, as well as other cannabis-derived narcotics, after searching a cannabis club on the Orihuela Costa.

In addition, 759 euro in cash were seized and two people were arrested for an alleged crime against Public Health, since they were supposedly in charge of the premises. In addition, a complaint has been filed against the establishment for lacking a licence.

The operation was carried out on May 27, when members of the Local Police who were carrying out surveillance work in the Via Park I shopping centre, saw that the cannabis club ‘The high doctor’ was open, since there was movement of people entering and exiting.

Thus, upon accessing the premises, they verified that there were several people grouped at different tables consuming marijuana and hashish cigarettes, for which reason the documentation of the association was requested from the person in charge of the premises, in which there were also two people who carried out work as waiters.

The Local Police proceeded to identify the eight people who were inside the premises and informed them that the Government Sub-delegation would notify their names for alleged possession of illegal substances. The establishment was sealed and the seized material was brought before the courts at the Guardia Civil barracks in Torre de la Horadada.
