On January 30th the Guardia Civil arrested a person found with 8.7 kilograms of hashish in their car while travelling on the boat from Lanzarote to Gran Canaria.

During routine surveillance and inspections of disembarking vehicles, the Guardia Civil randomly selected vehicles to search.

The attitude of the driver caught the attention of the agents, who according to the report expressed signs of nervousness and hesitation.

After checking the driver’s documents, a canine unit inspected the car and identified that there were substances inside. A search was conducted where the Guardia Civil found a bag full of packets of hashish.

The bag was seized, and the drugs were tested to verify the substance. The test came back positive for cannabis.

The driver has since been arrested and is now awaiting the following legal procedures in court.
