The Vice Squad, together with the Customs Department, found and confiscated around 150 kg of cannabis from a merchant ship last night.

The ship, registered in Panama, was on a route that would take them around many countries. The cannabis was found in plastic packets.

Preliminary investigations show that the drugs were not destined for the local market.

Investigations are ongoing.
