Police crack 'one of the biggest' alleged cocaine rings

POLICE have allegedly uncovered a massive cocaine smuggling operating on the state's South Coast, with sources saying officers had seized one of the biggest hauls of the drug in recent times.

Several people have been arrested, including a Huskisson man believed to have worked at a St Georges Basin maritime training facility, after a yacht was intercepted off the South Coast a few days ago.
