Thousands of litres of illegal alcohol destined for distribution across the Murcia and Alicante Province areas have been seized by agents of the Guardia Civil and the Tax Office. A Jumilla bar owner was arrested after inspectors found that he was substituting low-grade quality whiskey for the official brands, and investigations then led to a couple of drinks warehouses in Murcia and Villena in Alicante Province where they uncovered thousands of doctored spirit bottles and gallons of illegal hooch.

The raid in Villena uncovered a hidden distillery within the warehouse where some five thousand litres of low-grade liquor was set to be poured into premium bottles, with six thousand bottles also impounded. Six thousand thousand litres of ethyl-alcohol was also seized from a warehouse in the Murcia area village of Patiño.
