THE Policía National have conducted several successful raids in La Línea discovering a haul of over six hundred marijuana plants and two guns.

Four individuals were arrested who are believed to be part of a much larger criminal organisation cultivating and selling marijuana across the whole of Andalucia.

The Policía National revealed that three of the grows were in properties on the outskirts of La Línea while the fourth crop was located in a house in Los Barrios.

The operation is believed to have been highly sophisticated with the gang using machinery and hydroponics to encourage rapid cultivation of the plant.

Intelligence on the criminal operation was gathered by the Organized Crime and Drugs Unit in La Línea after a tip off from a member of the public.
