2 British Lorry Drivers Arrested Over £16million Heroin Hidden in Bread Sticks


Two British lorry drivers were arrested in Italy yesterday after police found more than 40kg of heroin hidden in boxes of bread sticks at a ferry port. The heroin is said to have a street value of around 20 million euro (£16 million).
The drugs were discovered in the back of a lorry bound to be delivered to Lancashire, England, during a routine check by customs officers and members of the Guardia di Finanza.
The drivers have been remanded in custody in a local jail and are expected to face charges of drug trafficking.
