Civil Guard have released details of a bare-faced drug smuggling operation which brought cannabis onto the beaches of Marbella in broad daylight as sunbathers looked on, then sped their cargo away in vehicles waiting on the beach. The drugs were jet-skied onto the beach, as accomplices hiding out in nearby scrubland ran out to help unload and transfer the cannabis off the sand.Officers seized 2.5 tons of cannabis and arrested 10 of the drug runners, with property searches taking place in Benalmádena, Fuengirola and Mijas. 10,000 € in cash were also seized.Another 3 people are suspected in the case.
