In the records carried out in two homes of the detainees and the premises of the association, more than 11,000 euros in cash, precision scales, notebooks with purchase and sale notes, bags for drug packaging have been seized, 250 grams of marijuana and a prohibited weapon (electric laser). The investigation began at the beginning of the year on the occasion of the opening of a cannabis association in the municipality of Pacheco, due to the fact that the neighborhood complaints were increasing, due to the presence of people consuming narcotic substances in the area, which generated certain suspicions about a hidden and illegal purpose related to the sale of narcotic substances.

4 of San Javier (Murcia). As a result of the investigation, it was detected that the association had a large influx of young people who went to it in order to buy marijuana, making it a very active drug outlet in the town. Due to the large influx of people it had, it made investigators suspect that the association was reporting significant financial benefits to its board of directors. After several months of investigation, the Civil Guard informed the judicial authority of the results of the evidence obtained and requested the corresponding entry and search warrant. During the last days, after six months of investigation, the Benemérita has carried out the operation of the 'Venema I' operation, which has resulted in the arrest of three people who are members of the management of the cannabis association, making two entries and records at the homes of the detainees and at the headquarters of the association. In the records carried out, the Civil Guard has seized more than 11,000 euros that, presumably, came from the benefits they obtained from the association with the sale of marijuana, as well as a prohibited weapon (electric laser), machetes, goods for the cultivation of the drug, weighing scales, 250 grams of marijuana and documentation related to drug trafficking. The cannabis association has been closed and sealed under a judicial order, as a precautionary measure until the end of the investigation phase. The detainees, the drug seized, the effects seized and the proceedings investigated have been made available to the Court of First Instance and Instruction San Javier n ° 4 (Murcia). With the development of the operation, it has been possible to dismantle an active drug sale point in Torre Pacheco, which used the legal figure of a cannabis association to try to hinder the work of the police forces and give it a legal appearance.
