A thousand years ago...

Or rather last month, I noted that the Falkland Island authorities had nabbed a million pounds worth of cocaine from a Spanish trawler.

And the plot has thickened:

"Nearly one million pounds worth of cocaine has been stolen from Stanley Police Station in the Falkland Islands, reported the local government. Twenty nine packets of cocaine seized by Falkland Islands authorities from the fishing vessel “Ventura” on 30 October 2008 were secured as evidence in a double- locked police cell at Stanley Police Station pending the court hearing. On 25 November a check of the cell revealed that 23 of the packets were missing. According to the official release a search of the premises found evidence of one discarded bag and packaging from some of the missing packets".

And thickened again:

"Falklands Chief Executive Mr Tim Thorogood has initiated a disciplinary investigation in to the conduct of Paul Elliot, Chief Police Officer, following the recent incident involving the missing Cocaine seizure at the Police Station".

Updating my estimate from last month, if the 23 kilos that have gone walkabout are in a two person stash, that ought to be enough to keep them happily mashed for 60 odd years' worth of evenings. Always supposing their septums do not rot out beforehand.
