Most-wanted drug trafficker arrested after appearing in music video
Smile, drug trafficker; you’re on candid camera!
An interesting turn of events transpired in Spain after most-wanted drug trafficker Francisco Tejon, leader of the Los Castanas clan was arrested at La Linea de la Concepcion,” a southern city near the border with Gibraltar, a police spokesperson said.
He may as well have been sprawled across the silver platter of justice, for his arrest ensued after he made an appearance in a reggaeton music video.
The music video is for a song by reggaeton singer Class-A, but unlucky for you, he’s taken the video off the internet for obvious reasons.
Reportedly the video shows Tejon get out of a Bentley, enter a house filled with bikini-clad women around a swimming pool and ends up in a room where more scantily clad mamacitas are waiting for him.
It “shows the lack of respect (drug traffickers) have for the security forces,” Jose Encinas of the AUGC Guardia Civil association told AFP.
It’s a family thing, as Tejon runs a major hashish trafficking network in the southern region of Andalusia with his brother Antonio, who was arrested in June.
In 2016 the two brothers escaped a police operation that resulted in the arrest of 30 suspected members of the gang.
Drug traffickers in unemployment-riddled Andalusia are getting bolder with operations, landing shipments of drugs on beaches in broad daylight and physically attacking police officers.
According to the interior ministry, La Linea de la Concepcion is in Cadiz province, the entry point for 40 percent of the drugs smuggled into Spain.
According to Police unions, 30 drug trafficking groups with more than 3,000 members operate in the province – just 15 kilometres from Morocco’s northern coast.
At least it’s one most-wanted drug trafficker arrested, though there are thousands still to go.
