| ´Operative plan for police response to retail drug trafficking in leisure areas and places´ | He was arrested red-handed when he was selling cocaine to an alleged client Nine doses of cocaine, a precision scale and 299 euros in fractional currency have been seized The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia, within the framework of the services established to prevent and prosecute drug trafficking, has developed an operation in Archena that has resulted in the arrest of a Villanueva del Río Segura neighbor as the alleged perpetrator of drug trafficking crime. He was arrested red-handed when he was carrying out a drug pass to an alleged client, and he was seized nine doses of cocaine, a precision scale and 299 euros in fractional currency. The investigation began last July, when the Civil Guard learned of the existence of a possible mobile drug sales point in the municipality of Archena. From that moment, the Benemérita established numerous surveillance devices that made it possible to detect the presence of an individual who was traveling in his vehicle from neighboring Villanueva del Río Segura to carry out the retail sale of narcotic substances. The Civil Guards began a series of discreet surveillance that found that apparently, he made appointments with his clients, and delivered the substances in a few minutes. The suspect also had a record, some of them for crimes against public health, so surveillance was maintained on his movements to verify his alleged relationship with drug trafficking in the municipality of Archena. In one of these services, the civil guards caught him red-handed when he was about to sell a toxic substance to an alleged drug user. The Civil Guards proceeded to arrest him and seize nine plastic wrappers that contained a whitish powdery substance that, after analysis, turned out to be cocaine. A precision scale and 299 euros in fractional currency were also seized from him, these pieces are enough to verify his alleged relationship with drug trafficking. The arrested man, a 38-year-old Spaniard, a resident of Villanueva del Río Segura, the drugs, the money and the effects taken, as well as the proceedings ordered have been made available to the Investigative Court of Molina de Segura (Murcia). The operation has culminated in the dismantling of a retail drug point of sale in the municipality of Archena.
