Six people, including a British man, were arrested after authorities seized 1,500 kilograms of cocaine worth about 120 meters off the coast of Plymouth.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) said a British and five Nicaraguans from Stockton-on-Teeze, Durham County, were arrested on a Jamaican flagged yacht 80 miles (129 km) from the sea.

The NCA said in a statement that men between the ages of 24 and 49 had been arrested and detained for drug trafficking.

The arrest was a joint operation of the NCA, the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the Border Force.

NCA’s Deputy Director Matt Horne said: “There is no doubt that these drugs would have been sold to communities across the UK in the same way as County Lines fueling more crime and misery.

“Organized Crime Group (OCG) is motivated by money. The lack of these drugs will puncture OCG’s ability to plan and operate.

“Also, the arrest of a man carrying drugs means that the criminal group has lost a trusted criminal who would have been central to their operation.

“We continue to work with domestic partners such as Border Guard and overseas partners such as AFP to protect the public from Class A drug threats.”

“This result will be the strongest warning for criminals,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police for the Australian Federal Police, Lesa Gale.
