On Monday night the Vagar Airport custom officers arrested a passenger for possession of five grams of cannabis, reported Faroese news site Portal.fo yesterday.
Faroe Islands Police do not want to clarify whether the passenger was a Faroese or a foreigner.
According to Portal.fo, a fine – imposed in the Tórshavn Courthouse – is the most likely punishment for the passenger.
In 2017, Taks – the Faroese customs authorities – seized a record amount of drugs (23 kilos), primarily cannabis but also hard drugs such as Cocaine and MDMA.
In 2016, Taks seized only 6 kilos of drugs.
