£7m ganja haul in the UK; drugs arrived via Jamaica

Cops in the UK have launched a manhunt for international drug lord in connection with the seizure of £7 million-worth of ganja, shipped via Jamaica from Cuba last year, reports the Northampton Chronicle & Echo.
The drugs were individually parcelled and labelled, leading Northamptonshire police to believe that they were intended to be distributed throughout the UK. Police said their investigation had now centred on one individual.
"Enquiries were made internationally with other law enforcement agencies and these are continuing," said Detective Chief Inspector Tom Davies. “We are looking to arrest a man in connection with this seizure and we maintain an open mind as to the eventual destination of this drugs consignment, but we don’t believe, at this time, it was intended for Northamptonshire.”
The haul, believed to one of the biggest ever seized in the UK, weighed a total of 1.3 tonnes and was found on a lorry travelling between Daventry and Corby in April last year.
