The vessel ran into trouble on the southbound trip, however, and docked in Rabat, where the smugglers waited until March, when they set out on the voyage back to Spain loaded with drugs.

 

They were boarded by Spanish customs agents out at sea, as Policia Nacional officers prepared to raid properties on land.
