The large board itself was empty, but two boxes containing the playing pieces both had slabs of coke glued inside.

Separately, Spanish cops arrested an Irishman after they broke up a smuggling ring sending weed to Germany in furniture shipments and seized over 2m worth of the drug earlier this week.

The man, whose age was not given by authorities, was detained along with two German nationals when police raided a growhouse and other properties in Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol.

They had been monitoring the gang after receiving a tip-off that they were cultivating marijuana locally and sending it to German cities to be sold on the streets.

One shipment of 15kg (worth around 200,000) had already been found in heat-sealed bags hidden inside four wardrobes being transported to Germany.

Detectives learned that another load was about to be sent and moved in as two of the gang were driving away from a warehouse.

Inside were three large weed plantations equipped with top-of-the-range hydroponic equipment which had been illegally hooked up to the national grid.

The Irishman and the two Germans were brought before an investigating judge, where they were placed under official investigation for drug trafficking, criminal association and electricity theft.

All three were remanded in custody pending the outcome of investigations.

However, cops said the mastermind of the operation, a Bulgarian man, was not at the scene and is being hunted by authorities.

In a statement, they said: National Police agents have dismantled a crime organisation involved in the international trafficking of marijuana.
