Europol says that over 100 people were arrested when police in Spain busted an illegal drug ring earlier this summer
The European policing authority said that the arrests occurred on July 13 when Spanish police, in collaboration with police from Germany and Albania, detained 107 individuals during 42 raids in Barcelona and three smaller cities in Spain’s northeast.
Police allege that the network illegally grew marijuana in Spain and smuggled it to other European countries for sale.
More than 50 clandestine cannabis farms were discovered in the operation. Police estimate that the ring used over 1.6 million euros ($1.9 million) in stolen electricity to run the farms.
