The Isle of Wight County Press reports
FOLLOWING drugs arrests made in Yarmouth overnight, police are yet to confirm whether they are linked to a massive National Crime Agency operation in which cocaine packages were recently washed up on Isle of Wight beaches.
Last night (Saturday), three men were rescued by Yarmouth RNLI in their boat, Yvonne T, 12 miles south of The Needles, then subsequently arrested on class A drugs possession and supply charges.
Specialist police officers from Hampshire were seen at Yarmouth Harbour this morning (Sunday) going over the cordoned off Yvonne T with a fine tooth comb.
One eyewitness said they were on their hands and knees, looking inch by inch around every part of the vessel, which included piercing lifebuoys on board it.
