A 24 year old Gibraltar resident was arrested on Monday at 22.40 on board a vessel with a cargo of 484 kilos of cannabis off the coast off Chiclana by Guardia Civil, according to a report in the Agencia EFE.

The man identified only as DJO has been held in police custody.

A second man aged 27 and resident in San Fernando was also arrested. His initials are JLP.
