During a routine control by police authorities in Pamplona on July 6, within the framework of the San Fermín Festival, an individual was arrested and subsequently released for alleged drug trafficking. The subject, brother of the president of the government of Navarra, María Chivite, was found in possession of synthetic substances, hashish and a considerable amount of cash. After being placed at the disposal of the judge, he was released on charges.

The Navarrese government deployed a large police presence with more than 2,600 officers, including the National Police, Civil Guard, Foral Police and Pamplona Municipal Police, in order to guarantee security during the San Fermín festivities.
