Welshman, Three Years for Drug Running

LHR-Marina-Este-smallA Welsh yachtsman has been sentenced to three years’ imprisonment after having been caught with 1.8 metric tones of hashish on board.

The incident occurred just over a year ago (16th May) when customs officers from the Guardia Civil became suspicious of his yacht, which was docked in Marina del Este.

During the search the police found 63 packages contained the said drug, with a street value of three million euros. The guilty man, P.C.N., was also fined the equivalent amount of its street value, as well as the prison sentence.

This case is very similar to another one in 2012, when a man from Barcelona was discovered in same circumstance in Marina del Este: see article HERE. He also received a 3m-euro fine.
