Police found high levels of cannabis, amphetamines/methamphetamine, cocaine, opiates; as well as alcohol, with a rate of 0,60 mg/l.

Local police told Euronews that a neighbour in the town of Carcastillo called the police saying that “several people were getting in a vehicle influenced by alcoholic beverages.”

The driver was fined 1000 euros and had six points deducted from his driver’s license for failing the alcohol test, and another 1000 euros and six points for failing the drugs test.
