The three members of the criminal group have been arrested
The alleged authorship of crime against public health is attributed to them
The two records made have allowed the logistic structure of the criminal group dedicated to the intensive cultivation of marijuana to be dismantled
The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia, within the framework of the 'Moicomo' operation, has broken up a criminal group based in Murcia and Santomera, composed of three young people and dedicated to the intensive cultivation of marijuana.
In the two records carried out, the Benemérita has dismantled a dryer and a large-scale marijuana production laboratory, and half a thousand marijuana plants have been seized in different stages of growth, four vehicles, 2340 euros and all the objects used for the illicit cultivation of marijuana (sophisticated devices for lighting, heating, irrigation and ventilation, as well as for subsequent handling and distribution).
The proceedings began last October, when members of the Prevention of Citizen Security of the Benemérita opened the investigation to see an increase in the consumption of this substance in Santomera.
The first investigations allowed the civil guards to focus the main line of investigation on a group of people, which allegedly developed the illicit activity of drug trafficking, specifically marijuana.
The researchers located the objectives and discovered that they had a home in the garden area of â€‹â€‹the municipality of Santomera, which is dedicated entirely to the cultivation of marijuana.
The investigation also allowed to verify that they had another ship in the Murcian district of El Esparragal, where they moved the marijuana plants that they cultivated in the house for drying and handling, and then sell it on a large scale.
The criminal group now dismantled was allegedly engaged in land sales with different vehicles.
For this, they used secondary roads and garden paths as a security measure to try to mislead researchers.
Once all the necessary evidence has been obtained, the Civil Guard has carried out the operation's operation phase with the arrest of three of the members of the criminal group, including its leader or ringleader.
Prior judicial authorization, the civil guards have made the entry and search of the house and the ship that the group used to carry out the illegal activities.
These actions have resulted in the dismantling of a clandestine greenhouse dedicated to the cultivation of large-scale marijuana that, at the time of registration, 500 plants of cannabis sativa were being cultivated.
Several kilos of buds of this substance have also been seized.
The investigation shows that the criminal group now dismantled directed an infrastructure capable of producing large amounts of marijuana, by growing several thousand plants of this substance annually.
The detainees, the apprehended drug, the recovered effects and the proceedings taken have been made available to the Court of Instruction of Murcia.
Second blow to drug trafficking in the last week
The culmination of the 'Moicomo' operation is the second blow dealt to the cultivation and subsequent illicit trafficking of marijuana, since a few days ago, in this case in collaboration with the Local Police of Cehegín, the Civil Guard completed the 'Carrasmar' operation , carried out in the ceheginera district of La Carrasquilla, which resulted in the dismantling of a criminal group that ran an indoor marijuana plantation enabled in a building.
During these actions the three members of the criminal group were arrested and 80 marijuana plants were seized.
