Canada Real’s 4 families in the grip of drug trafficking

The National Police and the Civil Guard, in a joint operation, have dismantled four family clans, allegedly an organization dedicated to drug trafficking, in the Cañada Real Galliana in Madrid and in the municipality of Coria in Cáceres, both Entities report.

The operation, called Ketoya-Cinella, resulted in the arrest of 31 people, 21 men and 10 women between the ages of 22 and 69 and led by a married couple with multiple records of drug trafficking.

After their arrests when they all went to court, in late November, a judge ordered temporary custody for five members of the network who were in the “upper echelon”.

The investigation by the Civil Guard began in late 2021 following a complaint from an electricity supply company, which alerted it to the detection of extremely excessive consumption in an area of ​​the Canada Real Galliana.

In the middle of winter, agents confirmed the operation of several air conditioning units 24 hours a day, despite low temperatures on that date, leading them to suspect they were being used to grow marijuana.

Shortly afterwards, the Civil Guard and the National Police learned that they were conducting investigations into the same organization, which is why they joined forces in a joint operation.

After several procedures in the area of ​​the home where the high power consumption was detected, the agents managed to identify a large portion of the components of the framework.

In the middle of 2022 they completely disbanded the organization composed of 31 people settled in different areas of Canada Real and in the municipality of Correa (Cáceres).

According to investigators, there were four families who acted in an “organised” and “thoroughly planned” manner.

They were led by a couple from Canada Real and had several children at the bottom, who were in charge of paying for and controlling the logistics of distributing medicines and electricity generators.

The rest of the members were dedicated to the handling, harvesting and preparation of the narcotics.

The operation ended late last November when agents carried out 10 searches, nine in Canada Real and one in Korea.

In total, 75,000 euros in fractional currency, three small firearms, two long weapons, 43 kg of marijuana buds, 1,400 plants, 84 grams of cocaine and a high-end vehicle were seized.

Similarly, 31 arrests were made and five marijuana cultivation, maintenance and drying facilities were destroyed, as well as four drug sales points.
