National Police officers have arrested a 47-year-old man of Spanish nationality for the alleged crime of drug trafficking. Investigations led to a home located in the town of Benijófar where officers believed drugs were being manufactured. The house was unoccupied but visited regularly by the arrested man. The suspect was pulled over in his car and officers found a hidden compartment containing the chemicals used to make the drugs.

Officers attached to the Narcotics Group of the Elche Police Station began an investigation which led to a home in Benijófar and had well-founded suspicions that someone was manufacturing narcotic substances inside. Discreet surveillance revealed that no one lived inside. However, one person visited several times during the week, staying several hours inside. He travelled between the property and Gandía where he lived.

The agents managed to find out the identity of the person and evidence that led them to assume that there could be a clandestine laboratory in the property where the suspect manufactured narcotic substances, specifically cocaine, for distribution. The man was stopped in his vehicle in a service area in Santomera, Murcia.

Officers carried out an exhaustive search of his vehicle and discovering that it had a sophisticated system in a hidden compartment. Hidden inside were chemical products to produce the narcotic substance found in the Benijofar property.

Ten bottles containing ethyl acetate, boric acid and other chemical products were seized, as well as a large number of items for the preparation of illicit substances. The search of the address in Benijófar uncovered an illegal laboratory where the arrested man produced the drug. More than 100 grams of cocaine was seized, 270 euros in cash and various tools for the manufacture and distribution of the narcotic substance.
