The Spanish Guardia Civil, with the support of Europol, dismantled a criminal network that trafficked cocaine from South America to the Port of Algeciras in Spain. The network was capable of controlling the maritime traffic of containers from South America completely. The operation consisted of employees who worked in various areas at the Port of Algeciras. These employees included a worker from a port container terminal, two workers from the Border Inspection Post, four from Auxiliary Maritime Services (SAM), and several stevedores, freight forwarders, consignees and carriers.
29 people have been arrested; 1,600 kg of cocaine and EUR 16.5m was seized.Intelligence from Operation Trojan Shield revealed the network was shipping a large consignment of cocaine hidden in frozen mackerel.
