Six friends in their 60s have been arrested for smuggling hundreds of kilograms of cannabis from Spain to Denmark, reports Ekstra Bladet.

Danish police discovered 60 kg of marijuana in one of the smugglers’ houses in the seaside resort of Dronningmølle in northern Zealand.

The gang had previously managed to sell another 140 kilos of the plant.

Two members of the gang have already been convicted, while the others are waiting in custody for a trial that will take place in the spring.

Two of them – Danes aged 67 and 59 years – were detained in Spain as they drove out of the country with 60 kg of cannabis hidden in the car’s door.
