    The police are currently investigating his appearance in a music video. Officers say the video features Francisco Tejón, the biggest drug trafficker in Campo de Gibraltar, in the south of Spain, Spanish daily El Paìs reported.

    If the video was made last month – and not before the end of 2016 when an arrest warrant was issued for the gang leader – it would mean that the drug lord has been living in Campo de Gibraltar with complete impunity along with hundreds of illegals also involved in drug crimes.

    It was a gesture of arrogance on the part of the drug lord and his Moroccan friends in the face of the security forces, as well as a warning to the hashish drug clans that he is still around.

    Police are now hoping the video clip will give them clues into the whereabouts of Tejón. According to some rumors, he lives in Morocco, while others say he is moving around in Spain daily, protected by Moroccan gang members.

    Tejón is the leader of the Castaña clan, a cartel that has made more than €30 million from drug trafficking in recent years, according to police investigators.

    A warrant for his arrest has been out since 2016 but being one of the most-wanted men in Spain did not dissuade Tejón from starring in the video. Nor did the fact that his brother Antonio was arrested in June.

    The music video was published on YouTube on October 2. Police sources from La Línea de la Concepción, one of the areas hardest hit by drug crime in the region and the home of the drug trafficker, confirmed that the man in the clip is Tejón.

    His act of overt exposure come in the wake of an Instagram account exposing photos of the drug kingpins’ parties, prostitutes and girlfriends. Since that betrayal, the Civil Guard says, Tejón has lost trust in his lieutenants and has taken a more active role in controlling his gang. “He’s more exposed now,” one officer states. “He’ll fall thanks to that arrogance.”

    In some scenes of the video, there are images of the outside of the house used by the gang for private orgies, according to an El Paìs investigation. And in September, Clase-A shared various photos and videos of the filming process on social media.

    The house that appears in the video is well known to the police. Officers previously was thought it was just another one of the cartel’s many properties, one of the 17 listed in the 2017 investigation Operation Ronal. But when they entered the home, located in the Guadacorte de los Barrios residential estate in Cádiz, they discovered that it was being used by the cartel frequently.

    It is indicative of the decadence and fearlessness of drug gangs moving between Morocco and Spain. In 2017, police launched the drug-trafficking investigation which led to the arrest of 30 members of the Castaña cartel and forced two of the Tejón brothers into hiding.

    On June 7, Antonio Tejón was arrested in La Línea in an operation that required more than 100 officers.

    A growing number of Moroccans are trying to leave their country illegally to reach Europe by sea or by crossing the wire fencing between Morocco and the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla in North Africa.

    The kingdom is also a transit country for thousands of migrants from sub-Saharan Africa.
