A MASSIVE haul of drugs has been recovered in a united operation by West Yorkshire and Spanish police.
Police in Barcelona searched a warehouse on behalf of the West Yorkshire force on Monday.
They recovered suspected cannabis and a quantity of what is believed to be cocaine, with a combined street value of £1.6m.
The Drug and Organised Crime Unit alerted police in Spain after intelligence suggested the drugs may be destined for West Yorkshire.
A 38-year-old Leeds man and man from Wakefield aged 36 were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to import controlled drugs.
They have been interviewed and released on police bail, pending further enquiries.
Det Chief Insp John Gilbody, of the Drug and Organised Crime Unit in West Yorkshire, said: "My team targets people suspected of dealing at a high level in the drug network.
"These networks can stretch across countries rather than counties and the investigations can be difficult and lengthy," he added.
