A local man was arrested after attempting to import ketamine with a street value of £554 into Gibraltar last night.
The man, 23, was arrested following a joint operation between Drug Squad detectives and Customs Officers from the Flexible Anti-Smuggling Team (FAST), together with specialist Drug Detection Dogs.
The incident happened just before 9pm last night, when officers stopped a locally registered car with two local males inside, as it entered Gibraltar from Spain.
Both men were searched and the passenger was found to be in possession of a plastic-wrapper containing about 27.7 grams of a white powder.
This was tested and found to be ketamine.
The man was then arrested on suspicion of Importation, Possession and Possession With Intent to Supply a Controlled Class C Drug.
He was taken to New Mole House Police Station where he was interviewed by detectives, before being bailed out pending further enquiries.
