The latest arrest for drug trafficking in Madeira reported earlier this afternoon included the seizure of 25 kilograms of hashish that came in packages bearing the CR7 label.

It is no longer the first time that the image and name of the Madeiran ace is used by the traffickers, and this time it happened in Madeira, in the land where he was born.

The images that illustrate this article have just been captured by Jornal Madeira, who is in the Department of Criminal Investigation of Funchal for a press conference.

The arrest took place this week following an investigation initiated in November 2018 – the operation “Safe Out” – aimed at the dismantling of a group that was engaged in drug trafficking in the Autonomous Region of Madeira.
