A pensioner has been jailed for eleven and a half years for importing £1.5 million worth of drugs into Jersey.

69 year old James Rice from County Antrim in Northern Ireland attempted to smuggle cannabis, ecstasy and cocaine into the island in a Porsche onboard a ferry from France in June.

Meanwhile in a separate case, a 20 year islander has been sentenced to five years in youth detention, after admitting to importing 2,000 ecstasy tablets.

Aiden James Brookfield-Dean was caught at the harbour in April.
