POLICE have seized a massive haul of suspected ecstasy tablets in an operation on the M5.
Two men were arrested and 100,000 tablets seized in the operation yesterday.
It is understood that the pills - which if they do turn out to be ecstasy would be worth £100,000 - were being taken to Glastonbury music festival.
The operation had been organised by Avon and Somerset Constabulary and was supported by Gloucestershire Police.
During the operation officers from Gloucestershire Police stopped a vehicle travelling southbound on the M5 and seized the suspoectec class C drugs.
A 23-year-old man and a 26-year-old man, both from Bude in Cornwall, were arrested on suspicion of being concerned with the supply of drugs. They are currently helping police with their enquiries.
Sergeant Richard Knapp said; “We hope this operation and subsequent arrests show that Gloucestershire Police are dedicated to working with their colleagues in other areas to tackle drugs offences and keep our communities safe from harm.”
