Police uncovered 120kg of speed hidden in a shipment of Dutch flowers in the town of Durango in Vizcaya this morning.

According to a statement, a team of officers from the National Police and the Guardia Civil have prevented more than 400,000 dosis of amphetamine sulphate reaching the market.

The drug was hidden amongst the flowers in a shipment organised by a company run by a Dutch national living in Burgos, whose fleet of trucks regularly make the trip betweem Amsterdam and various parts of Spain.

The owner of the shipping company is thought to be the one responsible for contracting the shipment of drugs, which here destined for the north of Spain, in particular the Basque Country and Navarra.

Having had the Dutch owner under surveillance since he left Spain for Holland, police controlled his entry into Spain in Irún following the vehicle to Durango, where he and another person accompanying him in the truck were arrested after a search of the vehicle revealed four suitcases containing a total of 120kg of speed.

The Dutchman's home has also been searched and his wife and another lorry driver who worked for the company have also been arrested.
