A gang which smuggled drugs in the false compartments of lorries carrying classic cars travelling from Spain to Britain has been arrested as police seized one of the largest hauls of Ecstasy in Europe, worth tens of millions of pounds.
To finance its operation, the organisation transported marijuana and hashish in the lorries to Britain and Holland where the drugs were sold.
Spanish police said the gang’s ‘cooks’ would make the drugs which were later sold across Spain.
After an operation lasting a year, police seized 827,000 Ecstasy pills, 76 kg of amphetamine, 39.5 kg of crystal meth, 310 kg of hashish, 89 kg of marihuana, hashish, 2,000 doses of LSD and 1.65kg of cocaine.
Police also arrested 11 members of the organisation after a series of raids across Spain which centred on its headquarters in Barcelona
