The Almuñécar law courts were cordoned off with a heavy Policia Nacional and Guardia Civil presence. This extra security was in place for the transfer of six people that had been arrested as part of the anti-drugs, police operation, Operacion Pozo.
This, the third part of the operation, had the Guardia Civil and the drugs squad of the Policia Nacional carrying out home searches in Motril and Almuñécar, ending up with five arrested in Huerta Carrasco and one in La Herradura. It was the transfer of these six suspects that had the court houses heavily guarded and cordoned off to the public.
Almost a dozen police vehicles from both police bodies were parked outside, all within a cordoned off area. Police were carrying out identity checks on those that needed to enter the area, because they either lived nearby or had business at the law courts.
These six suspects join the other 14 people that have also been arrested in the last few months in Motril, Almuñécar and La Herradura.
