arrested two Moroccan men, aged 32 and 38, who were found to be carrying 350 pellets containing 2.7 kilos of hashish in their insides. They were arrested during a routine control of passengers disembarking from the ferry from Nador, Morocco, and have been charged with a crime against public health.According to the officers, the men showed signs of nervousness and they were taken to a separate area to be searched. When nothing was found on their person, they were asked to take a voluntary x-ray, during which foreign bodies were detected in their colon, which they evacuated during the following days.During the month of January, 26 people were arrested at Almeria Port after they were found to be carrying different quantities of hashish in their anal cavities, which is a very dangerous practice and can have fatal consequences if the capsules break inside the body and the drugs are absorbed into the system.
