Officers seize cannabis worth £1m in Guernsey: Two charged

Drugs worth an estimated £1m have been seized in Guernsey.

Two men have been charged with drugs offences following arrests in the Grandes Rocque area.

Guernsey Border Agency said the cannabis raid was one of the biggest in the past 10 years.

The agency worked with Guernsey Police to seize cannabis from several locations around the island ahead of the arrests at about 13:00 on Wednesday.

A Guernsey Border Agency spokesman said: "This is one of the largest local seizures of cannabis resin over the past decade and we're pleased that this joint operation has kept a large quantity of the drug off Guernsey's streets."

Adrian Osborne, 50, from the Castel, was charged with a number of offences including being concerned in the supply of a controlled drug, and possessing a controlled drug with intent to supply.

Thomas Waterman, 43, from St Sampson, was charged with being concerned in the supply of a controlled drug.

Both men appeared before Guernsey Magistrates and were remanded in custody.

Police said another man and a woman were released on bail.
