Highway bust

A total of 600kgs of hashish was confiscated by the GNR’s coastal force of Olhão (Unidade de Controlo Costeiro) in a small boat which was being trailered by a jeep on the A22 motorway. The driver and the passenger, aged 22 and 40, were arrested close to the Loulé exit. “The officers noticed suspicious activity and decided to inspect the boat,” said the head of the UCC. The drugs were hidden under a false floor.
