Brits arrested on drug trafficking charges in Ibiza

TEN Brits were arrested in Ibiza in the second part of a large anti-drug operation. Seven were sent to prison without bail, two had a €10,000 bail set and one was released on charges.

Five kilos of cocaine, 500g of ‘crystal’, 500g of methadone, around 5,000 ecstasy pills and several LSD doses were seized by the Balearics Guardia Civil Organized Crime Squad (ECO).

In the first part of the operation, 13 people were arrested late August and four kilos of cocaine, five kilos of MDMA powder and 3,600 ecstasy tablets were seized.

This is the organization believed to be responsible for selling the ecstasy tablet that killed a 20-year-old British tourist in July, Spanish newspaper #I# Diario de Mallorca #I# reported.

Jodie Nieman from Croydon (south London) had been clubbing at the Space nightclub in the Playa d’en Bossa resort with a group of girl friends when she felt ill. She was taken to Can Misses hospital at 4.30am suffering a heart attack.

“Ambulance staff tried to resuscitate her and on arrival at the hospital medics tried to save her, but it was not possible and she died at 5am”, a hospital spokesman said.
