Eight waterproof packages containing a total of 200 kilos of hashish were discovered, anchored just off La Playa del Muerto, which is the one at the far end of Cotobro, accessible via a pathway around the rocks. The submerged ‘goodies’ were discovered by a local diver.
The Guardia Civil, once alerted to its presence, scooped the lot. They considered that the drugs had either been weighted and thrown overboard during a chase, or had simply been left for a local contact to retrieve. Gosh, that was exciting, wasn’t it!
