    Well done to all involved. Such arrests and any resulting prosecutions should be published in all local media as a means of deterring prospective smugglers.

      Good job. I just want to add that smugglers will never be deterred  as long as there is a supply. Locking up addicts with no form of counselling, education or help to get them going in life will always that demand..
