Woman arrested in Mosta over weapons stash and illegal drugs

A 24-year old woman tried to get away by car and resisted arrest but eventually caught by the Rapid Intervention Unit and found in possession of irregular weapons and illegal drugs

Police have said that a 24-year old woman, Naomi Tanti, was eventually arrested in Mosta after attempting a car getaway.

The woman resisted arrest, and after she was taken away, a quick search in her vehicle revealed that she was in possession of a small amount of cannabis, unlicensed weapons and sharp instruments.

This happened after the Police Drug Squad, together with members of the Rapid Intervention Unit, was following possible leads in Naxxar that led them to the 24-year old in question.
