Twleve Britons are among group arrested in Magaluf along with drugs and cash, accused of dealing in holiday spot's clubs.


Spanish police have arrested 14 people including 12 Britons, a Spanish and a Dominican, in the holiday resort of Magaluf on the island of Mallorca for alleged drug dealing. Raids were also carried out in Barcelona.

Police officers seized 3kg of high-purity cocaine and other drugs, including ecstasy, methamphetamine and cannabis, over 100,000 euros in cash and four vehicles, Spanish police said in a statement, adding they were assisted by the UK’s National Crime Agency.

Operation Tantum was launched following another drug raid last year that ended with the detention of four people.

Magaluf, on the island of Palma de Mallorca, is a well known party spot visited by thousands of young tourists every year. Police say the men arrested were part of an organisation that sold drugs in the island’s many
nightspots and clubs.
