Three men and a woman were arrested on Tuesday in a police drug operation in St Thomas Bay, Marsascala.

The police said that a boathouse in the area had been under surveillance for a number of weeks after the police had received reports of cocaine and heroin trafficking in the area.

Drug squad officers, assisted by members of the Special Intervention Unit, arrested three men hailing from Cospicua, Qormi and Marsa at the site. They later arrested a woman in Zejtun.
