Record 1.2 tonne Cocaine haul

Customs in Southampton have found a record 1.2 tonnes of 90% pure cocaine. This was destined for The Netherlands from the Caribbean. It represents the equivalent of around a third of UK consumption in one year or around 7 million street deals.

There may well be some other dealers very pleased with this. A large section of the competition removed in one go.

Re: Record 1.2 tonne Cocaine haul

I'm now trying to work out if Nicola is pleased and whether this is because she's one of the *ahem* aforementioned competition...

Re: Record 1.2 tonne Cocaine haul

Also this week. 1 million worth of cannabis plants found growing in caves behind a former Chinese restaurant on Hastings seafront. It is the biggest haul for the local Police here

Probably the "anonymous tip" came from the dude who has the other 2/3 of the cocaine in the UK!
