Man arrested following seizure of �30m worth of drugs in Brandon

A 37-year-old man has been arrested in relation to a drugs haul in Brandon worth more than �30m.

The man, from Ipswich, is suspected of conspiracy to supply class A drugs and possession of a controlled drug.

He was today (Thursday) awaiting questioning at the Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre.

The cocaine, seized in October last year from a building on Highbury Road, Brandon, was the largest haul of class A drugs ever recovered in Suffolk.

Two men, Terance Smith, 56, of Ethelreda Drive, Thetford, and Frederick Colverson, 57, of Galsworthy Avenue, London, appeared in court earlier this year in relation to the discovery.
