Two arrested after high-speed chase

  • The two men were detained for operating and importing a prohibited item

Two Gibraltar residents were arrested on Wednesday after a high-speed chase at sea by HM Customs and the RGP's marine squad. The incident occurred around midday, when their Spanish-registered semi-rigid inflatable vessel - which was also seized by the authorities - was spotted on the east side of the Rock. The two men were detained for operating and importing a prohibited item. They were both released on police bail.
