A man from Togo was arrested and another man managed to run away as police officers seized drugs in Marsa on Friday evening.

The police said that the 43-year-old man from Togo, who resides in Birzebbuga, was arrested in Triq is-Sajjieda at around 8.45pm.

Police officers from the Rapid Intervention Unit had approached two men who were acting suspiciously.
