Police Arrest Man Over Cannabis Seizure

St Mary’s police have seized what they have called a sizeable stash of cannabis following a tip-off from postal workers.

They became suspicious of a package that had the distinctive smell of the class B drug.

On Friday afternoon police attended a business on the island where the parcel had been sent, addressed to an employee. He was arrested on suspicion of being connected with the supply of cannabis.

PC Mat Collier says officers can’t directly intercept the mail but can get involved once items have been delivered.

He says the 80g package would be worth around £500.

A local man arrested has been bailed and will return to St Mary’s police station to face the allegations.
