Jersey given $2m of confiscated drug money

More than $2m (£1.2m) has been given to authorities in Jersey to thank them for their help in seizing money made from drug trafficking in Colombia.

Jersey Police and customs officers from the joint financial crimes unit worked on the investigation, which involved the freezing of a Jersey bank account.

More than $8m (£4.9m) was seized in the operation led by investigators from the United States of America.

The money will be paid into a fund used to fight drug crime in the island.
