Following the news that the Malta Customs Department seized €4.5 million worth of cocaine, news has just broken that they also seized €20,000 worth of cannabis.
Yesterday, during routine checks by the Customs Canine Unit and by Customs Enforcement Unit, 10kg of cannabis was found hidden inside a car.
The car arrived in Malta by ferry from Sicily and belongs to an Italian national.
The drugs were found by Sparky the sniffer dog, and are the second stash of drugs to be found by Customs yesterday. It also marks the seventh major dug bust to take place in Malta in 2018.
