Spanish police have confiscated 2.7 tons of marijuana in the biggest bust of the drug in the country’s history.
The huge quantities of cannabis were to be transported to Britain and the Netherlands and had already been processed, police said Friday.
Twenty-five suspects of various nationalities, including British, Dutch, Spanish and Romanian, were arrested.
The drugs were transported in lorries, hidden in various objects such as decorative material, and beer and wine containers.
Police estimate they could have made some 30 million euros (35 million dollars) profit.
As part of the investigations, which began in April last year, police managed to uncover two marijuana plantations in Cabrera de Mar near to Barcelona and in Calafell near Tarragona.
