Seven people arrested for drug trafficking across two separate raids

In two separate raids which took place at night between Monday and Tuesday of this week, police from the anti-drug unit arrested seven people after they were found in possession of a considerable amount of cocaine ready for trafficking. 

The first operation was carried out in the Qroqq area, with police following a vehicle after receiving intel of drug trafficking taking place. The vehicle was followed up until Triq Maria Teresa Spinelli, and was subsequently surrounded, with a 53-year-old man arrested on spot.

The man had been found with various cocaine packages. Police later carried out the second operation in an apartment in Triq Manuel Magri, Hamrun. 

Six people were arrested from within the apartment – three men and three women – with their ages varying between 20 and 53 years. 

The officers found another considerable amount of drugs in the apartment, with packages ready for trafficking as well as another substance which was being prepped to be packaged. Amounts of cash were also confiscated by police from both localities. 

Two men were taken to court today by police at 1300 as the investigations continue by the force.

Texas artist creates 19 free custom caskets for victims of school shooting

Texas artist creates 19 free custom caskets for victims of school shooting

The services for some of the 19 students and two teachers killed in last week’s mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas took place last Monday. 

And 19 of the victims were buried in custom made coffins made by casket-maker Trey Ganem. The owner of custom casket company SoulShine Industries, Ganem is based in Edna, Texas, and donated his services free of charge. 

He told CNN that he didn’t even think twice when he was asked to do it. BuzzFeed News reported that Ganem was contacted by the Texas Funeral Directors Association to make the caskets on the day of the shooting. 

He has since made coffins for 19 of the victims. SoulShine’s Industries’ caskets usually cost between $3,400 and $3,800 to make. But Ganem has no plans of charging the families as ‘this is something no family should ever have to deal with.’ 

Ganem’s son, Billy, expressed SoulShine’s desire to help make the victims’ family’s current situation “a little easier.”

25-year-old Billy said that ‘There’s nothing we can really ever do to make it easier, but that’s our goal: to help the families … start their grieving and their healing and just try to make something special for them.’
