Irishman arrested in Tenerife for sending drugs hidden in cushions to Ireland
A male Irish citizen has been arrested in the south of Tenerife after police detected several parcels in which he tried to hide marijuana and hashish in cushions, using the postal service to send them to various European countries, including Ireland.
As the result of an investigation carried out by the Customs Surveillance of the Tax Agency in collaboration with ODAIFI which is the Fiscal Section of the Guardia Civil at the port of Santa Cruz, parcels were monitored to confirm the source and destination before his arrest.
The investigation has been carried out over several months in which the detainee made continuous trips to the port to control the infrastructure that he had organized in his country of origin, Ireland, where most of the shipments detected were sent.
With this arrest, one of the groups that had been operating in the south of Tenerife is considered dismantled. The organization made its shipments through different parcel companies, trying to evade customs controls by hiding the narcotic substances inside everyday objects, such as cushions or clothing.
The operation has been carried out within the framework of the preliminary proceedings instructed by the Investigating Court No. 2 of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
