Guardia Civil stationed at TFN Los Rodeos have arrested an individual identified as 32-year-old Madrileño J.J.V. who was trying to smuggle drugs into Tenerife. The police acted in the arrivals hall where the accused’s behaviour raised the police’s suspicions. When a search of his luggage found nothing, he was subjected to X-ray in HUC where he was found to be carrying foreign objects inside his body. Subsequent analysis showed that these were 78 capsules of cocaine weighing 842 grams in total. The smuggler is now being processed by the authorities.
