A strange way to smuggle drugs from Morocco to Spain
The Spanish police announced that they had seized 6 unmanned submarines capable of transporting large quantities of drugs from Morocco to Spain, and had dismantled a gang suspected of making them.
The police said in a statement that its members seized six so-called "drone submarines" and arrested eight people in raids carried out in Barcelona and the provinces of Malaga and Cadiz in southern Spain.
The police added in the statement that this is the first time that similar devices have been confiscated.
"These devices could allow smugglers to remotely transport large quantities of narcotics through the Strait of Gibraltar," the statement said.
The statement added that three marches were to be handed over to a French drug gang "to transport large quantities of cocaine."
Police believe the gang manufactured the unmanned submarines to be "capable of carrying large payloads" for use by other criminal organizations.
