The Mirror reported that Spanish officers seized 370 kilos of cannabis, including buds and more than 10,000 plants, which were destined to be smuggled in paint cans to the UK.

The police raided warehouses around the capital Madrid and confiscated around 100 of the 500 paint pots.

“Police arrested a group of Chinese nationals who were planning on sending more than 12 kilos of cannabis buds inside bags to the UK,” a spokesman for Spain’s National Police.

The arrest came after a probe into the gang began last year near Spain’s border with Portugal, the spokesman added.

“The method they were using and the fact the drugs were going to be sent to different parts of London, made police suspect they were dealing with an important criminal drugs trafficking organization.”
