Dismantled in Alicante a motorcycle gang that was dedicated to marijuana trafficking
It is a subsidiary of the band Saturadah known as "one percent"
The ten detainees had in their homes more than 7,000 marijuana plants and 30 kilos of the drug packaged for sale
The Civil Guard has dismantled in Alicante a motorcycle gang dedicated to drug trafficking. The ten detained bikers – seven men and three women of Latvian, Serbian and Dutch nationalities – belonged to the Saturadah gang, specifically the affiliate known as "one percent".
The Sioux operation has concluded with the dismantling of this chapter – as it is called in their slang – recognizable by a diamond on their vests. The detainees are considered perpetrators of the crimes of drug trafficking, fraud of electricity and belonging to a criminal organization.
In the seven searches carried out in the Alicante towns of Villajoyosa, La Nucia, Alfaz del Pi and Altea, the Civil Guard has intervened 7,371 marijuana plants, 31 kilos of buds and five kilos of the chopped and vacuum-packed drug for sale.
In addition, the civil guards found a drone, a frequency jammer, a replicated weapon, 5,000 euros, six motorcycles and seven passenger cars, among other effects.
The detained members would have been settled in the province of Alicante for about four years. Their sources of income came exclusively from their illicit activity: growing indoor marijuana, which they themselves later sold.
The biker group Saturadah, whose name in Indonesian (Satu Darah) means the same blood, was founded in the 1990s in the city of Moodrecht (Holland).
The ostentation of the 1% patch framed by a diamond on their vests, aims to send the message that their way of life is governed by its own rules. They are described as out of law clubs.
Since 2017, many of its members have been convicted by the Dutch authorities for assaults, murder, illegal possession of weapons, among other crimes.
The operation has been carried out by the Information Group of the Alicante Command and the Main Post of Altea, coordinated by the Special Central Unit (UCE 3).
