Cannabis arrests in Jersey 'disrupt drugs ring'

Six people have been arrested in Jersey after police seized about 20kg of cannabis resin with an estimated street value of £200,000.

Det Sgt Craig Jackson said it was a substantial seizure that had disrupted a major drugs ring.

Five men and one woman, aged from 25 to 52, were held on Wednesday on suspicion of importing drugs into Jersey.

Officers also seized a large quantity of cash in a number of searches in the island and the UK.

Det Sgt Jackson said the drugs seized would now be destroyed.
