    British troops investigated for heroin smuggling

    BBC News - British troops investigated for heroin smuggling

    Military police are investigating claims that British soldiers may have trafficked heroin from Afghanistan.
    The Ministry of Defence said they were aware of "unsubstantiated" claims that troops were using military aircraft to ship the drug out of the country.
    The inquiry is focusing on British and Canadian service personnel at airports in Camp Bastion and Kandahar.
    Security has been tightened, with additional sniffer dogs being used as part of the crackdown at the bases
    I'm guessing if the Brits and Canadians are suspected of it everyone is upto it. Hopefully it's just a few bad apples not a systematic thing.

    During Operation Noble Eagle/Enduring Freedom, we ran our dope dog around every returning plane.

    It happens a wee bit in every service.

    Agreed. There are bad apples everywhere. I would venture to say the overall percentage is small.

    BBC News - Extra drugs dogs used at RAF Brize Norton air base

    Extra drugs dogs used at RAF Brize Norton air base

    Checks on returning soldiers have been stepped up at RAF Brize Norton after allegations that British troops have smuggled heroin out of Afghanistan.
    For the past two weeks, extra sniffer dogs have been used at the Oxfordshire air base.
    The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has stressed the claims are unsubstantiated but confirmed military police were investigating.
    Brize Norton is the main air base for troops flying to and from Afghanistan.
    Officials estimate 15,000 service personnel pass through the Oxfordshire air passenger terminal every month.
    Earlier this year four service personnel and four civilians were charged with plotting to smuggle more than a million cigarettes into the country on military aircraft through Brize Norton.

    Nothing new. It was done in Vietnam by soldiers and Air America pilots. Hell, there was corruption all over the place. the 1st Sgt Major of the Army Woolridge (sec) was later convicted to stealing PX and Slot Machine funds. Slap on the wrist. But, crime always always go along with the military in all ranks and the civilian camp followers.
