Cannabis club raided in Fuerteventura for selling drugs illegally
In a joint operation, the National Police and Customs Surveillance have arrested two men and one woman, aged 29, 41, and 32, respectively, on charges of a crime against public health following the dismantling of a cannabis association in Puerto Rosario in Fuerteventura.
According to a statement from the Canary Islands Police Headquarters, investigators became aware of a marijuana distribution point, based on numerous complaints from residents reporting the influx of people and the strong odour emanating from the club, which is located next to a football pitch frequently used by children.
The association, formed under the guise of a group focused on studying the properties of marijuana and its derivatives, was found to be distributing narcotics in the facility. In response to the complaints, police opened an investigation, confirming that the premises were indeed involved in the sale and cultivation of narcotics. The substance was being grown and processed for consumption in the home of two individuals associated with the establishment.
After obtaining a search warrant, two raids were conducted, one at the association's premises and another at the residence where cultivation was allegedly taking place. The searches yielded 44 marijuana plants and 10,740 grams of the substance ready for distribution. Additionally, various tools for drug processing and electronic devices were seized.
Following this, the three people responsible for the association were arrested on charges of a crime against public health and placed in custody pending further legal proceedings.
