Five British soldiers have been arrested after a raid by military police for “trafficking cocaine on the base”.

Five Englishmen soldiers were arrested on suspicion of trafficking cocaine at her military base.

An army spokesman said the detainees belonged to Larkhill Garrison in Wiltshire.

They were arrested by the Royal Military Police Last Tuesday.

Officers reportedly searched military accommodation in Wiltshire with specialized canine units following a lead.

The sting led to at least five Royal Artillery gunners being arrested on suspicion of trafficking in the Class A drug Daily Mail.

Larkhill Barracks, north of Salisbury, was reportedly closed following the arrests with troops at the scene undergoing mass drug testing.

“You couldn’t leave the camp without being tested. Otherwise no one was let out,” he said Daily Mail reported.

An army spokesman said: “A number of soldiers from Larkhill Garrison were arrested by the Royal Military Police on 26 April 2022.

“As the matter is the subject of an ongoing investigation by the Royal Military Police, it would be inappropriate to comment further.”

On its website, the British Army says it has a “zero tolerance” approach to drug abuse, which is “incompatible with life in the army”.

“Any soldier found to have used illegal substances will be appropriately disciplined, including discharge from duty,” it said.

The Royal Artillery has been contacted for comment.
