Dismantled a criminal group specialized in laundering large amounts of money to other parallel criminal organizations
A total of 21 people have been arrested in different provinces such as Madrid, Toledo, Badajoz, Ciudad Real and Alicante, and 24 entries and searches have been made
The main laundering channels of this criminal group focused on investment in real estate projects, the “sale of bank transfers” and the sale of cryptocurrency and precious metals.
A total of 124 bank accounts linked to those investigated have also been judicially blocked, as well as 52 real estate properties.
The agents have also been able to determine how those investigated were nourished by large-scale marijuana buds from legal plantations from which fiber and hemp can only be used commercially, for specific uses
The Civil Guard, in the so-called Operation GAONA, has detained a total of 21 people belonging to a criminal organization specialized in money laundering that in turn provided services to other criminal groups that obtained large economic benefits through various illegal activities, mainly drug dealing.
With this operation, the Money Laundering Group of the Central Operative Unit (UCO) of the Civil Guard has completely dismantled a corporate network made up of more than 50 companies, leaving its commercial logistics blocked and starting the recovery of the largest possible number of illegally obtained assets and securities.
