First thing this morning, the Guardia Civil's criminal police launched a drugs operation in Sa Pobla. Some one hundred officers from across the island were involved, as were police dog units and the Guardia's helicopter.

Ten properties were raided, more than a dozen people were arrested and sales points for drugs were closed down. Those arrested are said to be of Maghreb origin.

A large quantity of drugs - cocaine and cannabis - was seized. The operation remains open.

Agreed, is there a day that goes by without some article concerning crime which iscommited by aan Eastern european or North African?? I have lived in Mallorca for years, there aren't actually that many of these people who actually live here, so as a proportion of those that do, the crime rates for that demographic are ridiiculously high. Sara and Walkace and other left wing loonies will disagree but we should round them up and put them on boats heading South. We can light the watchtowers to see them head over the horizon.

Maghreb origin, in other words from North Africa. Maybe we should continue lighting fires on the watchtowers to attract even more of them so that they can making even more illegal money whilst at the same time overloading the education and health services to which they have never contributed. Sara, Wallace, what do you think ?
