French car theft led police to large-scale hash smuggling (VIDEO)

The National Police in Spain says it has dismantled a French network that regularly transported hashish to France via the go fast method. A group of cars are driving at very high speeds along the highways from southern Spain to France. During any police checks, the smugglers quickly try to change the route of the cars behind them.

Car thieves

Nine people have been arrested: eight in France and one in Spain. In Spain, the police carried out five raids in the provinces of Málaga, Córdoba, Seville and Girona. Four properties were searched in France.

The investigation was coordinated by Europol and began after a criminal organization of car thieves was busted in France late last year. French police determined that one of the previously stolen vehicles had been taken to the city of Perpignan and may have been used to transport drugs from Spain.

Investigations revealed that a group of smugglers regularly transported hashish from southern Spain to the Lyon region using stolen vehicles.

1300 kilos of hashish

Stolen cars were loaded into a house in Cordoba province. From there it went to customers in various regions in France.

During the investigation, 1,300 kilos of hashish, 38 kilos of marijuana, three kilos of cocaine, two handguns, ammunition and 56,000 euros in cash were seized.
