One of the detainees is a specialist at a hospital in Cali and another detainee is accused of pretending to be a doctor to recruit female victims with promises of a job in Spain.

The gang allegedly recruited women and made them undergo illegal operations in hotel rooms or rented apartments to implant liquid cocaine in their breasts.

They also used so-called calf implants designed to give women more shapely legs to smuggle the drugs by replacing the silicon with liquid cocaine.

The women were later send to Madrid where the implants were removed by gang members.

The victims usually flew out of the Alfonso Bonilla Aragon International Airport in Cali and the El Dorado Luis Carlos Galan Sarmiento International Airport serving the Colombian capital Bogota.

All suspects have been sent to a preventative prison as the investigation continues.
