Spanish cops investigating the recent San Antonio shoot-out arrested 13 men, mainly from Merseyside, this week, in a raid on a secluded villa on Ibiza.
The Guardia Civile police reportedly seized handguns, knives, ski masks and baseball bats during the raid, which occurred two weeks after three youths were shot, during a gun battle along the main strip of San Antonios beachfront. Press reports linked the shootings to the islands drugs trade, which a new study of Brit holidaymakers recreational habits published this week, indicated could be huge. According to the survey carried out by marketing agency Tuned In, 39% of the 500,000 British revellers visiting each season expect to take drugs most nights with a third preferring ecstasy and 26% cocaine. Over one in five also take ketamine, the survey said, with woman, surprisingly favouring K more than men.
In more Ibiza crime news, Bad Boy rapper Puff Daddy became a victim last weekend, when cat burglars snatched a six million pound (US$10 million) necklace from a villa he was staying at.
He was livid when he found out the necklace had been stolen, a source told the Standard, he will be lost without it.
Fellow celebrity pop idol James Blunt, who bought a £2 million mansion on Ibiza earlier this year, also complained about low-level criminality on the island this week, condemning trespassers whove been invading his privacy.
Ive not had my place in Ibiza long but since Ive been here Ive experienced a lot of people hanging around outside my house, its totally out of order, the former soldier complained to the Daily Mirror.
Ive gone out and bought a gun that shoots rocks so if I catch anyone hanging round them I will get them with that, he warned.
