Eleven people have been arrested in a "macro raid" against drug trafficking carried out by the National Police in different municipalities of the province of Salamanca and that has allowed the dismantling of a network that used minors to distribute narcotic substances.
At the time of the searches, the agents have seized cocaine, hashish, marijuana, cartridges of different calibers, handguns, knives, mobile phones, precision scales, 16,250 euros and other effects.
Specifically, according to the information provided by the Provincial Police Station, the operation has allowed the dismantling of a distribution center and several points of sale of narcotic substance in Salamanca and province, after six home searches carried out in the town of Béjar, three in Salamanca, one in Candelario and one in an industrial warehouse in the Villares de la Reina industrial estate.
Under the name of 'Operation Sunami', "more than 100 agents" simultaneously began the intervention in different parts of the province after, seven months ago, the Local Operational Group of the National Police Station in Béjar began the investigation for the possible presence of several drug sales points in the center of the town.
For distribution, those responsible for the clan used various 'modus operandi', including the use of underage children to deliver the substance to buyers and thus make it difficult to detect.
Later, those responsible for the case verified that the organization was supplied with narcotic substances mainly in the towns of Salamanca and Candelario.
After the negotiations, the agents started up the device and carried out searches in ten homes and an industrial warehouse, in which they carried out the eleven arrests and the intervention of the narcotic substances, in addition to money and other effects.

After that, they instructed the proceedings and reported the facts to the Investigating Court of Béjar, to whose disposal the eleven detainees passed as alleged perpetrators of a crime against public health and illicit association, an instance that ordered the imprisonment of two of them and the release on bail of two others.
