Police officers in Torrenueva Costa arrested three individuals, two men and a woman, for drug trafficking amongst other charges.
Another charge is for resisting arrest and attacking Policía Nacional officers as they entered a farmhouse to find hashish and two air pistols and an air rifle, a machette and 170 euros in cash.
The incident took place around 10.30h yesterday morning after a police patrol observed an individual smoking what looked like a joint, who was joined by another person.
When an officer got out of the patrol car, the man who was smoking jettisoned the cigarette/joint, before hurrying off to a nearby farmhouse.
The officer caught up with him and a struggle ensued but the suspect managed to break free and run into the farmhouse. Immediately afterwards, the two men and a woman began to insult the officers and throw stones and bottles at them, according to the police. They were even threatened with an air rifle, states the police report.
One officer required seven stitches in one of his ears, owing to the impact of a thrown object.
Upon searching the farmhouse the police discovered that it was being used for the processing of cannabis plants into a ready-for-sale drugs.
