For some three months, Guardia Civil drugs specialists had been awaiting a significant movement of drugs from the Port of Santa Cruz, and they had therefore intensified security measures. Last week, a 27 year-old woman, a resident of Puerto de la Cruz, was subjected to a routine search as she attempted to board the ferry bound for Arrecife in Lanzarote with a hire car. Two suspicious packages were found in the boot of the car which contained 50 kilos of hashish split into 200 small blocks, which were destined for sale in Lanzarote. The woman appeared in court the following day and was immediately admitted to prison.
A 41 year-old Danish man who has been reported missing from his Los Cristianos home by his wife two months ago, was found by National Police officers last week in the Veronicas area of Playa de las Américas in a drunken state. He was unable to explain where he had been for the past two months, and was returned to his home. However, his homecoming did not go particularly well, and shortly afterwards he decided to jump out of the window of the second-floor apartment. Luckily, he fell onto a palm tree which broke the fall, but he did suffer several fractures to a leg. Local Police officers and an ambulance attended the scene, and he was taken to hospital for treatment.
In the south of Tenerife, a 24 year-old British man was recently arrested by Local Police officers from Arona when they saw him hit his 23 year-old girlfriend in the face, in front of her 2 year-old daughter in the centre of Los Cristianos. The young woman suffered a broken nose, for which she was admitted to a local hospital for treatment.
In Los Cristianos in the south of
Tenerife, plans are to be presented shortly to representatives of the Port
Authority and local residents for improvements at the port which include
the construction of an underground car park. Plans for the port itself are
intended to increase its efficiency rather than its size, and also include
the relocation of the water treatment plant and the possible unification
of the Los Cristianos and Las Vistas beaches with the removal of barriers
and the inclusion of more pedestrian areas.
