The Guardia Civil Organised Crime squad and the Anti Drugs  unit from Palma were involved in the operation which involved over 20 shops and business premises being searched by heavily armed members of the Guardia Civil wearing anti-stab  and flak jackets while Guardia Civil helicopters provided aerial support.
As a result of the raids, over seven kilos of cocaine were confiscated along with over 100 marijuana plants and 65,000 euros in cash, amongst other items.
