Juan Antonio Cellulio, head of the Central Narcotics Brigade, said three drones, including one made from a surfboard, were found in several warehouses near the port city of Cیزdiz, along with six large flying drones.
Sea-going devices were designed to carry 200kg of hashish and 30km of hashish. “These devices were navigated remotely via GPS, so that any person or organization member could check the location at any time and then arrange docking from home via a tablet and the right software,” said Cellulo. “Sello said.
The investigation lasted 14 months and led police to seize more than 150 kilograms of hashish and hashish, 1,61,537 in cash and arrest eight people in the Spanish enclave Ceuta on the north coast of Morocco and the southern Spanish cities of Cیزdiz and Malaga.
