In Ciudad Real, a city in central Spain, civil guard members dismantled a criminal network that operates in both France and Morocco. Twenty-two people have been arrested while four others are under investigation, Spanish news agency Europa Press reported on Thursday.

The suspects, who live between Ciudad Real, Toledo and Madrid are accused of falsifying public documents, money laundering and fraud.

In December 2018, investigations conducted by the police revealed that the criminal network is a structured organization that has three cells, composed of Spanish, Romanian and Moroccan nationals.   

One of these three cells was mainly headed by Moroccan nationals based in Madrid. «They used to receive stolen items from the other cells and sell them in black markets in Morocco through the ports of Motril and Almeria», the same source explained.
