The Local Police of Vila-seca arrested a 20-year-old young man accused of drug trafficking on Sunday.
He was carrying almost half a kilo of marijuana and 0.75 grams of a white substance, presumably cocaine. She also had money: about 80 euros.
The events occurred on Sunday afternoon, when the Local Police were looking for a mobile phone thief in the city. The detainee matched the description and for this reason he was asked for his documentation and his backpack was searched on Calle de La Riera.
The cell phone was not there because it was not the thief that the victim had described, but instead there was a transparent bag with the marijuana inside the compartment and a white substance that was possibly cocaine in another separate bag.
Due to the amounts he was carrying, the agent arrested the young man (resident in L’Ametlla de Mar) as the alleged perpetrator of a crime against public health. After passing the arrest protocol, late in the afternoon he was handed over to the Mossos d’Esquadra so that he could be brought to justice.
