Agents of the Civil Guard and the National Police, in a joint operation, have seized a cache of more than five kilos of heroin inside a van in Ferrol (A Coruña). As a result of the investigation, the agents have managed to dismantle a criminal group settled in Galicia, allegedly dedicated to the introduction and subsequent distribution of heroin and cocaine in Galicia. In addition, the agents have arrested 11 people and made 13 searches in different municipalities of the Galician provinces of A Coruña and Pontevedra.

The investigation, lasting more than a year, began in October last year when the agents carried out the first seizure and detention in the framework of this operation. It was in Ferrol (A Coruña), where the agents located a van that contained four kilos of heroin inside. The driver, who came from the home of one of those now detained in Sanxenxo (Pontevedra), was arrested and subsequently entered prison.

After several police efforts, the agents located a kilo of heroin in the home of one of the investigated persons located in Vigo (Pontevedra). This individual had a nine-year prison sentence pending for his participation, in 2017, in the introduction of 64 kilos of heroin that, later, were seized in an industrial warehouse in Caldas de Reis (Pontevedra).
Finally, at the end of last April – the fruit of a joint investigation by the National Police and the Civil Guard, and under the coordination of the Pontevedra Anti-Drug Prosecutor's Office – the agents carried out a device that allowed the arrest of 11 people and the complete dismantling of the criminal group investigated. They also carried out 13 searches in homes in Ferrol (A Coruña), and the Pontevedra municipalities of A Cañiza, Santa María de Oia, Sanxenxo, Cambados and Vigo. As a result of the searches, in addition to the heroin referred to above, 300 grams of cocaine, various documentation, money, vehicles and mobile phones intervened. On the other hand, the operation continues open and more arrests are not ruled out.
