Cocaine Worth £2m Seized In Poole

A man from Weston-super-Mare was one of two people arrested after 20 kilos of cocaine was seized at Poole ferry terminal.

Border Force officers stopped a lorry which had just arrived on a ferry from Bilbao, Spain, at about 6.05pm on Thursday 6th June.

They arrested two men, a 54-year-old from Weston-super-Mare and a 21-year-old from Malaga, Spain. Both were bailed until 6 September 2013.
 
The drugs, which officials say would have been worth around £2 million if cut and sold on the street, were found among a load of furniture.
 
Tim Fleming, of Border Force at Poole, said:
 
"As this detection shows, our officers are on constant alert, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to keep drugs, other smuggled goods and illegal persons out of the UK.
 
"We are determined to prevent this terrible trade which can have such a destructive impact on the lives of so many."
