Op Shark Activity

Last week, over the course of three days, States of Jersey Police undertook some proactive drugs work as part of an ongoing operation, named Op Shark, which was launched by the Force in February 2020.

As a result of this activity, five men and two women were arrested for drugs offences and have since been bailed, whilst investigations continue. Their ages range from 16 to 31.

Police also stopped, and where appropriate searched 22 people, carried out six drugs warrants, seized drugs with an estimated value of £6,500 and seized £4,000 in cash, suspected to be the proceeds of drug trafficking.

The seized drugs were a mix of Class A and Class B (Amphetamine, Cocaine, Ecstasy and Cannabis. All are yet to be analysed.

Acting Chief Inspector Mark Hafey who leads the operation said: “Our aim is always to uphold the law and as long as illegal drugs are out there we will continue to target those involved in drug related criminality. Recreational drug taking very often is a slippery slope to harder more harmful drugs and we want to stop illegal drugs at the source. This is ultimately about keeping our communities and islanders safe.”
