Four arrested in half-million-dollar drugs raid
More than half a million dollars in suspected illegal drugs were seized in a police and customs operation.
Four people were arrested in “Operation Triton”, and $14,000 in cash was captured, as well as suspected cocaine, cannabis, heroin and MDMA — commonly known as ecstasy or Molly.
Superintendent Nicholas Pedro, officer in charge of the Serious Crime Unit, said yesterday: “The investigation into this significant seizure remains ongoing and as such no further information will be provided at this time.
“However, I wish to commend our hard-working officers and their colleagues at HM Customs for their diligence and use of extensive intelligence gathering and investigative capabilities to prevent the potential threat these items could have posed to the wider community, were they not detected and made it on to the streets.”
The joint initiative included the Police Drugs Unit, Intelligence Department and Gang Targeting Unit.
