Jet Ski Rider Arrested

ALM Jetski smugglerA Moroccan man has been arrested by the Guardia Civil, suspected of people trafficking after he was caught with three undocumented immigrants on the back of his jet ski.

The man was intercepted at 11.30h, yesterday some three nautical miles off the coast of the municipality of Almuñécar, more or less opposite La Herradura’s Cerro Gordo.

The jet ski had broken down and was drifting when it was spotted by a fishing boat, who alerted Salvamento Marítimo, who then picked them up and took them to Motril Port.

The Almuñécar-based Guardia Civil were waiting for them at the dockside and arrested the jet ski’s pilot for suspected people smuggling whilst the passengers were processed as illegal immigrants, which is not a criminal offence, only an administrative one.
