Fuerteventura is placed at the epicenter of hashish traffic

Fuerteventura is placed at the epicenter of hashish traffic.

An article of the digital Vozpopuli affirms that our island replaces the strait in the entry of this drug from Morocco

The Security Forces have detected that Moroccan hashish drug traffickers increase their presence in Fuerteventura due to the iron surveillance that has been established in the Strait," explains the digital Vox Pópuli in its review of this Sunday.

According to Police sources, it is a more complicated route for criminals, but with which they run fewer risks with the aim of placing the drug in the Peninsula and then moving it to other countries in Europe."

Algeciras is increasingly controlled. That is the fear that has spread like wildfire in the last year within the main Moroccan drug trafficking groups. The pressure of the National Police and the Civil Guard has paid off throughout the Strait area.

New trend on the hashish route?

In this way Borja Mendes affirms in his article that the main Moroccan hashish narcos have pointed out a new point on the map: Fuerteventura. "The island has miles and miles of unguarded beaches where tourists roam. A perfect area to unload the caches quietly and safely."

The narcos move the drugs from the city of Tan-Tan and then move them to Tarfaya. From this city to Fuerteventura are about a hundred kilometers, 60 miles of navigation, which perform in less than a day.

"To carry out this work they use a zodiac with an engine of just forty horses to enter without much haste and setbacks in Spain. Once the hashish arrives in Fuerteventura, the complicated part of the work that involves redirecting the routes to the Peninsula begins," he explains.

That is the most difficult and arduous point for these criminal organizations. They pay an amount of about 300 euros for the bales to be transferred by legal logistics companies to Madrid. At that point they have trusted collaborators who either keep it, in areas like Vallecas, or assemble them in rental vans to take them down to the south.

Despite all these complications, both the National Police and the Civil Guard continue to give constant 'blows' to these criminal organizations of narcos. The last known was the 'Operation Citizen' developed by the agents of the UDYCO of the Canary Islands.

"The agents intervened in a villa in Fuerteventura 510 kilos of cocaine and a ton and a half of hashish. The criminal gang used a logistical framework typical of a multinational company to receive and distribute drugs throughout the Spanish geography," Borja Mendes concludes in his article.

Talk about going around the houses to get the drugs onto the mainland. I imagine there aren’t the same customs controls that exist via Morocco to Spain. Containers wouldn’t attract much attention from Canaries to the peninsula. Up until now that is. Also it could mean the staff at the Canarian ports are perhaps more easily bribed. It does demonstrate how the smugglers are always one step ahead of the law.
