Police seize £400k heroin masked as chocolate protein shake

A Police intelligence operation has led to the seizure of heroin with a street value of £400,000 – and a chocolate flavour sports drink container.

Two men aged 48 and 50 were arrested yesterday afternoon in St Helier on suspicion of drug trafficking offences.

Both remain in Police custody and have not yet been charged.

Police described the amount of the Class A drug seized as being of a “commercial quantity.”
