Spanish police bust 100 speedboat drug runners

Another big drug bust in Europe.

This time in Spain, where authorities say they've arrested 100 members of an organized crime group that used speedboats to ferry drugs from Morocco, across the Mediterranean, to a river near Seville, where it would then be disseminated across the continent.

Police say they made the bust in a series of raids and confiscated over five tons of hashish, as well as 230 kilos of marijuana.

Some members of the gang are said to have been employed to keep the boats running at a moment's notice.

The drugs would be hidden in fruit trucks for smuggling into France and parts elsewhere.

Footage released by the Spanish authorities suggests they found a book about drug running during the raids. A taser and fake rifle were also confiscated, among other items.
