The Civil Guard intercepted on May 29 a total of 1,800 kilograms of hashish divided into 55 bundles that had just been unloaded by a boat on one of the beaches on the coast of Abades (Tenerife) and arrested two men who were transporting drugs in a van.
As reported by the Benemérita, it was the Integrated External Surveillance System (SIVE) that detected after midnight a boat that was carrying out erratic and abnormal navigation off the coast of the island.
Thus, given the possibility that it was a vessel that transported narcotic substances or immigrants, a deployment was carried out by the Tenerife coast of several patrols of the Citizen Security Unit (USECIC), as well as plainclothes agents.
As a result of this deployment, it was observed how a van-type vehicle was circulating on an unpaved track of a beach in Abades, to which access of any type of vehicle is not allowed.
Then, the agents proceeded to stop the vehicle that, ignoring the signals of the civil guards, fled through the streets of the town, hitting two vehicles of the armed institute on two occasions, finally the driver and companion left the vehicle and fled on foot, being immediately detained by the agents.
For its part, when proceeding with the inspection of the vehicle, the Civil Guard verified that in the part destined for loading there were 55 bales of what appeared to be hashish. The detainees were placed at the disposal of the Granadilla de Abona Guard Court, whose owner decreed their entry into prison.
