The Malta Police Force’s Drug Squad arrested four people in Gżira over the suspected trafficking of illicit drugs.

Days of surveillance led the squad to carry out a raid in an apartment in Triq Luqa Briffa on Saturday night, with the assistance of police officers from the Rapid Intervention Unit.

The apartment was occupied by two men and two women, aged between 30 and 55, and a search yielded substances believed to be cocaine, heroin and cannabis. A “considerable amount” of cash was also found on site.

The flat’s four occupants were arrested, and police investigations are ongoing. Duty magistrate Doreen Clarke has opened an inquiry.
