Two men arrested in connection with trafficking and possession of drugs

Two men were arrested last night in a further operation against the trafficking and possession of drugs.

After a number of days of observation the Anti Drugs Squad intercepted a vehicle at Marsascala being driven by a 26-year-old man. A passenger in the vehicle was a 17-year-old youth. Both are residents of Mqabba.

The vehicle and the two men were searched and a number of sachets were found alleged to be cannabis and cocaine while there were also implements connected with drugs trafficking.

The vehicle did not have a valid licence and was not insured.

The two men were arrested on the spot and taken to the Floriana Police lock-up for further ongoing investigations by the Police.
