Earlier today a local man was arrested in Douglas on suspicion of serious drug related offences and money laundering offences.
About £20,000-worth of what is believed to be cocaine and ecstasy wasd seized along with what the police called ‘a substantial amount’ of cash.
Detective Sergeant Paul Holland said: ‘In recent weeks the “pro-active team” have had great success in targeting criminal networks involved in the importation and supply of class-A controlled drugs.
‘This is another positive step towards reducing the availability of class a controlled drugs on our island.
‘If criminals are considering importing or dealing controlled drugs, then be warned you may be the next person in custody helping with inquiries.’
