NCA: Drugs concealed within lorry load of vegetables

Recommended Posts

Chief Rat

A Romanian national was arrested after cocaine and heroin with a potential street value of £27 million was seized at a Sea Port.

A National Crime Agency-led operation, supported by Border Force and Humberside Police, led to the seizure of 400kg of cocaine and heroin concealed within a lorry load of onions and tomatoes.

The unaccompanied lorry arrived from the Hook of Holland on the morning of Wednesday 5 September. A 45-year-old Romanian national, who came to drive the lorry away, was arrested the same day on suspicion of conspiring to import class A drugs. He has subsequently been released under investigation.

NCA Branch Commander Jayne Lloyd said: “The seizure of this significant amount of controlled drugs supports our mission to protect the public from harm. We will continue to work with law enforcement partners to detect and disrupt criminal activity.”

Liz Versi, Director Border Force North, said: “This was a substantial seizure and demonstrates the vital work Border Force officers are doing to take Class A drugs out of circulation. “Working with law enforcement partners, like the NCA, we are determined to prevent drugs from being brought into the country and causing harm to our communities.”
