Hopefully the drug dealers are live testing their Brexit contingency plans just in case Brexit disruption means that the local supply of smack is affected. Howard has told everyone that they need to listen to government on the best ways of securing the supply chain into the Island post Brexit.

any suitable light aircraft passing over can chuck a package with a GPS transponder in it out a window.   and same for boats,  just dump a water proof case overboard with  a GPS transponder in it half a mile off shore and let some local in his little 2 man fishing boat go and pick it up.

Makes you wonder just how big the drugs problem is over here/how many smack heads we've actually got when they've managed to seize that much. How much still got through?

There is a massive problem here with heroin. It just never hits the press.

I suppose the amount of money that some one can make out of this racket, is huge, and worth the risk of a prison sentence, against the money you can make out of this, it is probably as close as you can get to winning the lottery ?

But you never actually see "heroin dealers" on the street corners, or advertised, so how do you market / sell a product like that, that you can`t market / advsertise ?

I think that the value of these hauls will, as usual, have been heavily overstated. Still, it's probably a fair bit of gear. Dunno how much it costs, but you'd imagine smuggling it in on the steam packet would be pretty easy in your car.

Isn't that the whole reason Trevor the Cunt has a boat?

Just hang round ground zero for smack in Douglas and you’ll see them nipping in and out. Mona Drive, Palace Terrace, Hutchinson Square, Stanley / Clifton Terrace and a lot of the surrounding area.

Given the security at Ronaldsway and at the Ports, how the hell does this amount of drugs end up getting into the island,

Is that why it is so expensive for a car and two passengers / drug mules ?
