WATCH: Spanish police storm boat to seize tonnes of cocaine

STORY: The AKT 1 was stopped on April 13 by a Spanish coastguard patrol about 300 nautical miles south of the Spanish archipelago as it tried to pass itself off as another fishing boat.

Spanish police seized 2.9 tonnes of cocaine, estimated to have a street value of 72 million euros ($77.80 million), which had been hidden in one of the fuel tanks.

The boat was returned to Gran Canaria on Saturday and the five detainees were remanded in custody in Las Palmas.
