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

They clearly see every passenger as potentially making thousands and therefore want a slice of the action.

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.

 

Isn’t that how a certain dealer by the intials JM bring the stuff onto the island?

Dunno about that, not seen him for a while, more likely to be in something suitable for riding a motorbike.

Can you be a bit more forthcoming with the description?

No. I can't really be any clearer. It's not like you'd elaborate on the initials JM.

So we've got £80k worth of Class A heroin seized in just 3 weeks on an Island 15 miles by 30. With a population +/- 80k. And an unknown quantity in circulation, the seizure may or may not be the tip of the iceberg. Alarming for anybody right-minded, surely?

What does that say about the scale of the problem and local society, that the problem rarely makes the press?

It obviously isn't 80 grands worth though is it? That's just bollocks, like the moron the other week with half a million quids worth of weed, which when you actually looked at the physical amounts was about a quarter of that. In the name of research I just fired up Tor and went on one of those dark market sites, high grade heroin sells for about £150/g on there, less if you buy a fair bit. One of these recent cases was through the post wasn't it, so very possibly from there. The police just seem to make prices up.

It’s well known that the reason there are so many “dealers” on the island is because idiots here are prepared to pay more than they would in the UK. Police told us that during a seminar

Sounds like a sales pitch from the MEA.

They value weed at £20 a gram though, which I've certainly never paid. It is nuts.
