46 year old Michael GRIMA, of Coelho House, has today been sentenced to
20 months imprisonment (reduced from 2 yrs & 8 months due to early guilty
plea), after he pleaded guilty at the Supreme Court to the Possession with
Intent to Supply approximately 2.7 kg of a controlled Class B drug, namely
Amphetamine Sulphate.

The case dates back to November 2017, when RGP Drugs Squad officers, as
part of an intelligence-led operation, stopped GRIMA as he entered Gibraltar
in his vehicle, with the assistance of HM Customs officers from the Flexible
Anti-Smuggling Team (FAST).

A search of GRIMA’s vehicle subsequently conducted at New Mole House
resulted in the seizure of the drugs in question in individual packages.

The street value of the drugs seized in this operation is of £45,000.00
