3-ton cocaine seized, 12 held in Spain

MADRID: The Spanish police Tuesday seized three tonnes of cocaine and arrested 12 alleged drug traffickers from Spain, Britain and The Netherlands in one of the biggest drugs busts of the country.

The seizure in the northeastern Galicia region was “the biggest for this type of drug on Galician soil since 1999”, the police said in a statement, without revealing when the operation took place. The cocaine was bound for an important smuggling ring based on the Costa del Sol in southern Spain, the statement added.
