Continuing with the investigations, the agents were able to verify that the place of origin of the seized drug was Granada and that there was a perfectly geared criminal network dedicated to international drug trafficking that would have carried out more than 40 transports of marijuana (Cannabis Sativa) alone between the months of September 2019 to February 2020.
