Drugs in the mail haul

Tasmania Police alleges thousands of deals of party drugs are off Tasmania's streets after they arrested and charged a Lindisfarne man. 

The 18-year-old will face court on a trafficking charge, accused of involvement in an operation using the post to bring drugs into the state. 

Detectives have seized nearly half a kilo of ecstasy as well as valium, ketamine and a gram of cocaine.

Police warn they will actively target the mail system in light of current restrictions on the state's air and sea corridors.
