Spain: Airport security guard arrested for smuggling drugs.

MADRID, June 5, 2016 (AFP) - A security guard at Malaga airport on Spain’s Costa del Sol has been arrested on suspicion of helping to smuggle marijuana to Britain, police said Sunday.

He was arrested at the airport last week with two other men who were trying to board a flight to London’s Gatwick airport with 4.5 kilos (9.9 pounds) of marijuana in their hand baggage, police said in a statement.

"One of those arrested worked as a security guard at the airport and he allowed -- in connivance with the other two who were arrested -- drugs to be transported in their hand luggage," it said.

The authorities suspect the men, Spanish nationals between the ages of 30 and 43, belonged to a drug trafficking ring.
