Two young men from Mqabba have been arrested over suspected drug trafficking in an operation carried out by the Drug Squad of the Malta Police Force.
After a number of days of observations, the police intercepted a vehicle in Marsascala which was being driven by a 26-year-old, with a 17-year-old passenger.
The two, and their vehicle, were searched, and the search yielded a number of packages suspected to contain cannabis and cocaine, as well as drug paraphernalia. The police also confirmed that the vehicle was being driven without a valid licence or insurance.
Consequently, both were arrested and taken to the police headquarters for questioning.
Investigations into the case are ongoing.
