Two men have been arrested after body searches carried out by police resulted in the discovery of bags of cannabis.

The arrests were made yesterday evening after police observed a 29-year-old Gambian man behaving suspiciously in Bugibba square at about 10:45pm.

Upon carrying out a body search, police found 15 bags of cannabis, a digital scale, as well as a sum of cash on his person.

A search of the man’s residence in St Paul’s Bay yielded other items related to drug trafficking, police said.

A second Gambian man, 28, was also at the residence at the time police carried out the raid. He was found to be in possession of a bag filled with cannabis.

Both men were arrested for further questioning by police.
