The Spanish police has seized seven tons of marijuana and detained five people in recent crackdowns in the southern province of Andalucia, provincial commissary Jose Maria Deira said Tuesday.

"The drug, coming from Morocco, is very pure, which has a market value of 10 million euros (about 14 million U.S. dollars),"Deira said, "it is the biggest volume seized in Andalucia this year."

Deria said the marijuana was captured on two ships respectively, one ton in Cadiz on Sept. 21, and the other six tons in San Lucar de Barrameda a day later.

"It took several days to report the seizure because the police was trying to make more arrests and seizures," police authorities said.

Deira added that all the detainees were Spanish and they would face judicial punishment.

Spain is one of the main arrival points in Europe of cocaine from South America and marijuana from Africa.
