A yacht trying to smuggle in a vast quantity of cannabis into Spain was so full of the drugs that it nearly sank, according to customs officials. Three Dutch nationals were arrested as the vessel was intercepted some 92 kilometres off the coast of Almeria with 10 tonnes of the drug on it.

“The drugs took up all the available space” aboard, including on the cabins’ beds and floors, a finance ministry spokesman said. The three Dutch crew members, two men and a woman, have been charged with smuggling and endangering public health.
