Portugal: GNR seizes 3 tons of hashish in the Guadiana River



The Coastal and Border Control Unit (UCCF) of the National Republican Guard (GNR) seized last Friday, February 23rd, around three tons of hashish and a high-speed vessel (EAV) on the Guadiana River, in a action that included the collaboration of the Guardia Civil of Spain.

As part of a coordinated patrolling action between the Integrated External Surveillance System (SIVE) of the Guardia Civil of Spain and the Integrated Surveillance, Command and Control System (SIVICC) of the GNR, with the aim of combating drug trafficking via maritime, the Portuguese and Spanish authorities detected “a semi-rigid vessel that showed suspicious behavior when entering the Barra do Rio Guadiana”. Following this, “a maritime patrol from the Olhão Coastal Control Detachment was immediately activated, with a view to intercepting and boarding the vessel that was sailing, hiding the signaling lights”.

Following this police operation, the GNR intercepted “a vessel that contained 80 bales of hashish inside, managing to prevent the landing of the narcotic product and seizing a total of 2 kilos of hashish, as well as the 997-meter vessel, five jerricans of fuel, various electronic equipment and navigation equipment”.

In a press release, the GNR also added that “in the presence of the GNR maritime patrol, the suspects embarked on an escape on foot to Spanish territory” and the facts were reported to the Department of Investigation and Criminal Action (DIAP) of Vila Real de Santo António .
