The Spanish Civil Guard have dismantled a violent drug gang, arresting 26 people, suspected of distributing hashish along the Gibraltar to Marbella coastline.
The gang were said to be very violent and did not hesitate to ram their vehicles against Civil Guard vehicles.
The operation began months ago when a unit from SIVE of the Malaga Command detected a suspicious boat off the beach in the province of Malaga.
The subsequent investigation soon identified other gang members and raids were carried out on 17 premises along the coast leading to the arrests of the gang.
The suspects are in custody awaiting trial.
