毒品走私。西班牙警方查獲的水下無人機

警方表示,這意味着他們已經搗毀了一個涉嫌製造這些車輛並向歐洲各地毒品走私者提供這些車輛的團伙。

西班牙警方表示,這是他們首次發現能夠在無人駕駛的情況下運行的水下車輛。

"警方在一份聲明中說:"這些設備可以讓販毒者遠程運輸大量的麻醉品,穿越直布羅陀海峽。

其中一艘潛艇已經完全建成,另外兩艘仍在建造中。據了解,正在建造的這兩艘潛艇打算交付給一個法國團伙用於走私可卡因。

這些車輛配備了GPS導航系統,販毒者有可能在世界任何地方使用像平板電腦一樣簡單的互聯網設備進行操作。

被捕的人中有一對父子,警方稱其中一人是合格的直升機飛行員,擁有製造這種複雜車輛所需的技術知識。

官員們聲稱,該團伙專門製造各種專門用於運輸毒品的空中、陸地和海上交通工具,並指控他們向丹麥、意大利、法國和西班牙的犯罪組織提供這些設備。

今年早些時候,一艘載有四噸可卡因的半潛式船隻在前往中美洲的途中被哥倫比亞海軍截獲。

西班牙已經成為毒品進入歐洲的一個關鍵點,因為它靠近摩洛哥--一個主要的大麻生產國,而且它與南美洲的前殖民地關係密切,世界上大部分可卡因都產自那裡。

Police say it means they have broken up a gang suspected of building the vehicles and supplying them to drug smugglers across Europe.

Spanish police say it is the first time they have discovered an underwater vehicle capable of being operating unmanned.

"These devices could allow drug traffickers to transport large quantities of narcotics remotely across the Strait of Gibraltar," police said in a statement.

One of the submarines was completely built and two more were still under construction. It is believed the pair being built were intended to be delivered to a French gang for smuggling cocaine.

Armed with GPS navigation systems, the vehicles could potentially be operated by drug traffickers from anywhere in the world using an internet-device as simple as a tablet.

Among those arrested were a father and son, one of whom police say was a qualified helicopter pilot who had the technical knowledge needed to build such sophisticated vehicles.

Officials claimed the gang specialised in building a wide range of air, land, and sea vehicles intended specifically to transport drugs, and accused them of supplying the devices to criminal organisations in Denmark, Italy, France and Spain.

Earlier this year a semi-submersible vessel carrying four tonnes of cocaine was intercepted by the Colombian navy on its way to Central America.

Spain has become a key point of entry for drugs into Europe because of its proximity to Morocco - a major cannabis producer, and its close ties with former colonies in South America, where much of the world's cocaine is produced.
