Stansted: £650,000 Drug Seizure At Airport

Drugs with an estimated street value of £605,000 have been seized at Stansted Airport.

The separate seizures were made on last Tuesday (July 10th) but the details have only just been released by the UK Border agency.

Cocaine was discovered inside car brake discs sent from Jamaica and Heroin in the backing of two blankets sent from Pakistan.

Bill Form, from Border Force, said: "These were two quite sophisticated concealments, but our officers are trained to expect the unexpected.

"The trade in illegal drugs is big business and the criminals who engage in this activity are always looking to find new ways to evade detection. It is our job to stay one step ahead of them and to put a stop to this terrible trade that has such a destructive impact on the lives of so many." 

Both cases have now been passed to the police for further investigation. No arrests have been made.
