Big haul for the Guardia

The Guardia Civil made a big haul last week when they boarded a hired yacht 10 miles off the coast of Javea, They found the hold was packed with drugs. They arrested the Spanish skipper and members of crew, and escorted the yacht back to its home port of Alicante. A thorough search revealed 147 bales of Hashish weighing between 4 and 4.5 tonnes. It is thought the yacht called Malta Blue had made a rendevous with another vessel as it had not had time to make a return voyage to North Africa.
