Two men have been arrested following separate drug raids in Qormi and Sliema.

In a statement issued by the Police, it was explained that a raid in Sliema led to the arrest of a 31-year old Serbian. The Police found 1.7kg of cannabis, and an amount of cocaine and MDMA in circumstances that show that the drugs are not for his exclusive use. Paper money along with plastic bags used for drug trafficking were also found. The drugs amount to around €40,000 in street value.

A second, separate raid in Qormi led to the arrest of a 25-year old man from Floriana. He was stopped while driving through Qormi, and a search resulted in 59 packets of what most likely is cocaine and cannabis, and paper money.

Police investigations are ongoing.
