The peace and tranquillity of Playa San Juan was interrupted on Monday evening 15th Sept 08 when the police flew into action with a large scale drugs raid. For several months undercover investigations had taken place in the Guia Isora area. The arrests shocked the villagers as one of the men whisked away in hand cuffs was a well know resident.

Bar Tropical as well as a neighbouring gym have been closed down by the National police. As well as San Juan further arrests were made in Fonsalia and the small village of Acojeje near Guia de Isora.
