In addition to the aforementioned , another 20 people have been arrested, 10 of them port workers . To this we must add the seizure of 480 kilos of the known as white powder.
As reported by the Civil Guard in a statement, JGM , 54 years old and Spanish nationality, has been arrested along with two other people, including his son , 32 years old and a trusted person for all issues related to drug trafficking.
The operation derives from what was called Operation 'Allis Ubbo' , carried out by the Drug Group of the Central Operating Unit (UCO) of the Civil Guard completed in the summer of last year, in which a total of 21 people , 10 of them workers from the port of Algeciras, from where they extracted 480 kg of cocaine intervened by the agents.
With this operation, the fundamental logistical support for the entry of cocaine into Spain through these port facilities was dismantled, in addition to being accredited by investigators the contacts of criminal organizations in Colombia, Morocco, France and other European countries with several of those investigated .
Subsequently, the operation 'Estratum' has been developed, focused on the patrimonial investigations of several people who could not be arrested or charged in the previous operation, since their participation in the specific facts investigated was not fully defined, although they had a very important role relevant in the criminal organization.
Intervened 710,000 euros in cash
In the operation phase of this operation, seven home searches have been carried out, which have allowed the intervention of 710,000 euros in cash, highlighting 13,000 50-euro bills , most of them hidden in hidden shoe boxes inside a pool table at one of JGM's properties

To this we must add a recently acquired boat and whose value was around 100.00 euros and 11 high-end cars, including several SUVs and a brand new motorhome.
With the arrest of JGM, 'El Señor del Puerto', there are already several "historical" drug traffickers in the Strait area that are being detained in recent months by security forces.
The most recent detention is that of the one known as 'Kiko the Strong' , who was recently arrested with 17 members of his gang in an important Civil Guard device, which had been done with the control of hashish entry by the Campo de Gibraltar, after the arrest and dismantling of the "Los Castaña" group .
Regarding JGM , it had been linked to drug trafficking and smuggling for decades, beginning in these activities as a minor, notifying different groups of smugglers of the presence of police patrols in the vicinity of areas of hashish and tobacco discharge.
Although he was arrested several times in different police operations against drug trafficking, over the years he has become the person with the largest network of contacts for the extraction of drug items from the port of Algeciras.
In fact, in the investigation referred to last year, JGM was seen in key meetings with the leaders of the "colla" of dockers of the Port of Algeciras, arrested for the extraction of these facilities from the 480 kg of cocaine intervened.
The Civil Guard has stressed that in conversations between the leaders of the criminal group that commissioned this shipment, they referred to JGM as "one of the referents of drug trafficking in Algeciras" or even on occasion, as "one of the most violent and dangerous people of the Campo de Gibraltar ".
Another one of those who also attended these important meetings was the one known as 'Maradona de la Cocaína' , who died when he was killed in an adjustment of accounts for a possible drug robbery between criminal groups.
