After discovering that he was carrying more than seven kilos marijuana, the Civil Guard arrested the 20-year old man at a Pulianas gas station.
Armilla's Civil Guard Patrol was looking for gas stations throughout the Metropolitan Area. They visited one in Pulianas. The civil guards arrived at the station to verify that everything was correct. They noticed a young man near the car wash, who became anxious and threatened to flee when he saw them.
Civil guards approached the Volkswagen Golf and detected the smell of marijuana. They asked the young man for his identification and confirmed that he had a valid police record.
Agents also requested that he open the trunk. Although he refused, he was unable to stop them from finding two large garbage bags containing 7.2 kilos marijuana in the vehicle. The young man was taken into custody and the drug was also taken to the Maracena Civil guard barracks for instruction on drug trafficking.
This action is connected to the Miller operation, which is conducted at a national level with the objective of fighting against marijuana cultivation and trafficking.
