Three people arrested in large drug bust in Portimão

Three people were arrested and around eight kilos of hashish and €12,000 in cash were seized in a huge drug bust in the Western Algarve on Monday (October 19).

The trio was arrested following house searches in Lagos, Portimão and Silves, as part of an investigation that started at the end of 2014.

GNR say they believe they have dealt a “big blow” to the drug dealing scene in the Western Algarve.
