with arrested cocaine kilos

Arrested with 2 kilos of cocaine

(Tamara - I missed this the other day. Report dated 9th May.)

Arrested on Monday the leader of Group 7 with two kilos of cocaine.

Cabrera Marichal, former civil guard accused in the Botavara case, arrested with two kilos of coca.

José Cabrera Marichal, former agent of the Civil Guard and who was the main convicted in the Botavara case, was arrested on Monday at the dock of Santa Cruz de Tenerife when he was caught with two kilos of cocaine, according to advances in its digital edition the Canarias 7.

Cabrera Marichal arrived on the island in the afternoon by boat and was captured by agents of the Civil Guard. When searching his belongings, they detected that he was carrying a package with that narcotic substance.

He was arrested immediately, transferred to the premises of the Civil Guard and will be brought to justice in the coming hours.

It should be remembered that the Supreme Court (TS) sentenced in 2021 to 6 years in prison and a fine of 1.5 million euros to four civil guards, including Cabrera Marichal who was the ringleader, who devised a plan to introduce by sea a cache of 733.55 kilos of hashish in Fuerteventura, from Morocco, with the purpose of allocating them to illicit drug trafficking on the island, where it would reach a value of 1,150,178.92 euros.

Smells fishy! If he was sentenced to 6 years in 2021 how is he out in 2023 and able to be smuggling Cocaine? Surely, they should be throwing the book at any Police officer convicted for drug smuggling. It’s impossible to trust the Police or the judicial system.

He had probably been in custody awaiting the trial - that time counts towards the sentence.

Unfortunately there are bad apples everywhere, in every walk of life - doesn't mean the lot are rotten, thank goodness.
