Policia Nacional in Andalucía have dismantled a criminal gang who defrauded social security to the estimated value of over €2 million.

Officers were involved in an investigation that lasted for more than two years, with the gang producing counterfeit documents to defraud the local health service.

It’s understood a pharmacist who was part of the gang would complete prescriptions based on false medical cards – enabling the gang to receive payment for the medicines.

Five people in Huelva have been detained, including a printer, a pharmacist and three pharmacy workers.
