Melilla is a small Spanish enclave in Morocco.
The man was the only occupant of a Mercedes E220 with a Dutch license plate. When Civil Guard officers examined his car, they saw that adjustments had been made to the bottom and sides that could indicate the presence of hidden spaces.
Further investigation revealed that 35 packages of hashish were hidden in the car, weighing a total of 27 kilos. The driver has been arrested. He is a 58-year-old Dutchman.
It regularly happens that Dutch people try to smuggle hashish into Europe from the Spanish enclaves in Morocco, Melilla and Ceuta.
