A police patrol became suspicious of a Spanish-plated car in the area at 4am and, upon further surveillance in cooperation with the Maritime Police, officers found the drug traffickers transferring 22 bales of hashish (a total of 800kg of the drug) from a speedboat to a jeep.  Police are investigating the case.
