MALTA - Police raids which took place on Thursday and Friday have resulted in nine drug-related arrests and a substantial haul of ecstasy, ketamine, cocaine and cannabis grass. Five British nationals, aged between 20 and 22, had been arrested on Thursday after they were found to be in possession of substances, which were suspected to be drugs.
Two other British teens, aged 18 and 19m were arrested on Friday and found to be in possession of MDMA, ketamine and cannabis grass, in amounts which denoted that the drugs were not intended for their personal use.
The first five youths admitted to charges of simple possession after being arraigned before Magistrate Miriam Hayman and were conditionally discharged. The teens suspected of trafficking also pleaded guilty, with one being sentenced to 12 months imprisonment and fined €500, while the other received an 11-month sentence and a €500 fine.
Yesterday, two further British nationals and a Maltese had also been arrested for ecstasy possession and in a separate investigation, the police arrested another 24-year old man for cannabis trafficking. They are expected to be arraigned in due course.
