Spectacular Costa Del Sol speedboat chase as police hunt ‘drug smugglers’ – News Live


 Spanish police were filmed ramming suspected drug runners after a high-speed speedboat chase  Drug smugglers on the Costa del Sol tried to outrun the police but the spectacular pursuit saw the Civil Guard forcing them to try and reach the shore of the beach of Manilva in Malaga, Spain  This is the second time the beach, popular with British tourists, has been the scene of a drugs drama in recent months  Back in July, when it was packed with holidaymakers, another boat loaded with drugs landed on the sand in broad daylight  The Christmas Eve pursuit saw the narco’s boat pursued by the police at high speed as a helicopter hovered over ahead  Dramatic footage shows how the boats both reached high speeds before the police vessel deliberately rams the narcos, forcing them to stop and limp back to shore  Despite the police helicopter landing on the beach first, the drug smugglers still try to make their escape but three of them were eventually caught and taken into custody  A fourth man was arrested as he sat at the wheel of a getaway car.  The narco boat was apparently on its way to Morocco to pick up a shipment of drugs  The detainees are a Spaniard and two Moroccans, all about 30 years of age, the nationality of the fourth man is unknown  The sea chase lasted for several kilometres before ending on the beach of Sabinillas  The three occupants jumped out of the boat and started running as they threw stones at the police  Police have been stepping up drugs patrols in this area of the Costa del Sol coast
