It was reported on 18th March that a Spanish couple were arrested by GNR Loule, in Vale de Eguas having come from Spain to purchase drugs here in Portugal.

The GNR stopped their vehicle and found a total of 375 doses of heroin in their possession. A Portuguese national was also identified in selling the drugs to them. It has been reported in the local media that the couple came from Ayamonte and Huelva in Spain due to the shortage of drugs supply in that area.
