The Guardia Civil, in a collaborative security operation at Dénia port, Alicante, on the 29th of February, detained a 20-year-old Colombian resident of Torrevieja for allegedly attempting to smuggle over eight kilograms of marijuana and more than one kilogram of hashish. The contraband was ingeniously concealed within an electric water thermos as the young man prepared to embark on a ferry bound for Ibiza. During a routine vehicle inspection, canine agent Andi of the Alicante Command’s K-9 Service signaled a suspicious cardboard box, ultimately leading to the discovery. Following a thorough investigation, the authorities found the drugs meticulously packaged within the thermos. The individual, without prior similar offences, was taken into custody on drug trafficking charges. Subsequently, he was released on bail with precautionary measures by Instruction Court No. 1 in Dénia. In addition to the narcotics, €500 in cash was also seized and handed over to the judicial authorities.
