They allegedly supplied any type of drug to other distributors and regular consumers of Puerto de Mazarrón and neighboring towns
A large amount of cocaine, heroin, hashish and marijuana, as well as other effects related to drug trafficking have been seized
The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia, within the framework of the 'Zegarra' operation, has developed an investigation to prosecute drug trafficking in Mazarrón, which has resulted in the dismantling of a criminal group that ran an active point of sale of narcotic substances.
After the operation, the Benemérita has arrested two people as alleged perpetrators of crimes against public health (drug trafficking) and crime of belonging to a criminal group.
In the record made, more than 2,500 doses of cocaine and heroin have been seized, about half a kilo of marijuana arranged in buds, 300 grams of hashish and cutting substance.
A large amount of cash has also been seized, more than half in coins, a revolver, a carbine, two crossbows and other effects related to drug trafficking.
Cash of the Judicial Police of the Benemérita began the operation last February to investigate the existence of a possible point of sale of drugs in a social housing of Puerto de Mazarrón, a supposed criminal activity that apparently had generated some social alarm in the location.
The first steps of the investigation allowed civil guards to verify that home users received a high number of visits for what were presumed to be retail drug transactions.
As a result of the investigations carried out, it was found that it was a point of sale of all kinds of very active narcotic substances, mainly supplying cocaine and heroin, although they also sold marijuana and hashish.
During the established surveillance device, the Civil Guard has verified that a large number of sales were made at any time of the day regardless of the day of the week.
For this, the arrested people took turns to combine drug transactions with the surveillance of the property.
The property, a social housing, was used exclusively to house inside the narcotic substance and all the necessary material for its handling and the elaboration of the doses in different weighings, such as grams, half grams and microns, as well as the substances of cut.
In that same place, part of the money obtained from the sale was stored, a large part in fractional currency, apparently delivered by drug addicts who practiced begging.
Likewise, it was possible to verify the high degree of security measures that the suspects adopted to prevent their arrest, as well as theft of other criminal organizations.
After obtaining all the necessary evidence and prior judicial authorization, last Wednesday, August 14, the Civil Guard developed the operation phase of the operation.
At the entrance and the search made in the property under investigation, the agents arrested two members of the criminal group and seized different types of drugs and effects related to the illicit activity clarified.
One of the suspects was arrested while carrying out surveillance and direct sales to consumers at the door of the house, seizing a bag with numerous doses of different substances arranged for imminent distribution.
In addition, numerous objects were seized, such as tools, bicycles, watches and jewels of doubtful origin that are being analyzed, not ruling out that they come from robberies in the area as a result of their delivery in exchange for small doses.
The investigation shows that those now arrested allegedly carried out a large number of sales of different types of drugs to other distributors and regular consumers of both Puerto de Mazarrón and other towns in the Guadalentín region.
The operation is still open for the full clarification of the facts, not ruling out the practice of more actions and arrests.
The 31 and 58-year-old Spaniards, residents of Mazarrón and with a background, the seized drug, the seized effects and the proceedings taken have been made available to the Court of Instruction No. 1 of Totana , which has exercised the judicial direction of the operation .
