Four arrested after seizure of $1.2m of cannabis

Cannabis seized as part of Operation Mizar (Photograph supplied)

Police have arrested four people after a $1.2 million shipment of cannabis was intercepted last week.

A police spokesman said that HM Customs had contacted police after they discovered a shipment that contained 58lb of the controlled drug.

The spokesman added that as part of Operation Mizar, carried out on Thursday, four people were arrested and three homes in Warwick were searched.

Detective Chief Inspector Sherwin Joseph, of the Specialist Investigations Department, said: “The importation of cannabis is still illegal.

“What we understand is that controlled drugs imported in such a manner involve persons who are members of organised crime groups, who are also involved in gang and gun culture.”

Police added that the drugs unit would continue to investigate the incident.
