The Guardia Civil has made the largest seizure of pink cocaine or 2CB ever made in Spain in Ibiza, in an operation carried out on the island on Monday, which ended with the arrest of 14 people.
13.25 kilos of 2CB were seized, the market value of which would have been 1.3 million euros.
In total, all the drugs seized in the operation would have had a market value of around 2.3 million euros.

According to the chief colonel of the Guardia Civil in the Balearics, Alejandro Hernandez, today, the operation ‘Via Fora’ was carried out by the Group of Teams Against Organised Crime of the UCO, in collaboration with Europol, the British NCA and the Directorate of Criminal Investigation and Interpol of the National Police of Colombia.

The operation has led to the dismantling of a gang based on Ibiza dedicated to the production, importation and distribution of drugs.

Hernández explained that up to 12 house searches were carried out on Monday in Sant Josep, Sant Antoni, Es Cubells and Ibiza, and 12 people were arrested and investigated for crimes against public health, illegal possession of weapons and belonging to a criminal group.
Most of them are British residents in Ibiza.
