Cocaine lab found in village home


Police have arrested a suspect for running a cocaine manufacturing operation from a home in the village of Benijófar.

A spokesman for the National Police revealed that a laboratory had been set up in a room of the property.

The case was investigated by detectives from the drugs squad based in Elche.

The spokesman explained that they received information that cocaine could be being produced at a location in the quiet municipality in the Vega Baja which has enjoyed a property boom in recent years.

A team carried out ‘discreet surveillance’ of the home and discovered that no one was living there.
