A 29-year old Greek national, who resides in Mosta, was arrested following a surveillance operation by members of the Police anti-drug squad.
In a statement, the Police said that through the Duty Magistrate authorisation, on Wednesday afternoon the Police followed a controlled consignment of a package which had just arrived in Malta from Spain and that, suspiciously, drugs were hidden in the package.
When the package was collected by the man, he was immediately arrested. The suspicious package was found to include a carton box wrapped in plastic bags with around a kilo of cannabis.
