A large operation of money laundering was discovered and crushed in Toledo, after the Tax Office and Civil Guard found that the area and Madrid, had exchanged over 300,000 euros illegally. The money was thought to come through drug trafficking.

Most of the money was sent back and forth as proceeds from drug trafficking, in shipments that were usually no more substantial than 3,000 euros at a time.

At the moment, two people have been arrested for their involvement in the scheme, and dozens of others have been implemented as involved. Documents found in a home in Toledo are expected to lead to the arrests of these people as well.
