The National Police confirmed that the operation was carried out in collaboration with the Colombian National Police, with investigations starting in early 2020.

"Dismantled: the biggest cocaine distribution network in Madrid," they reported on social media, adding that "12 people have been arrested in Badajoz, Guadalajara, Madrid, Malaga and Valencia and 600 kilograms of cocaine seized."

Searches were also carried out in Marbella and Pinto, Parla and Pozuelo de Alarcon, all close to Madrid. The organization that has been dismantled controlled a network of safe houses where they stored the drugs before distributing it around Spain.

The National Police explained that "due to the danger of the members of the group, the intervention of the Special Operations Group (GEO) was necessary." The GEO is an elite unit specialized in high-risk operations.
