Six soldiers nicked on drugs and money offences just days before Luvvly Jubbly celebrations | UK News

Six serving soldiers have been nicked on suspicion of conspiracy to supply drugs, and money lending and laundering offences.

The six members of the Irish Guards were nicked along with a Coldstream Guards veteran this week in an operation led by the Royal Military Pigs.

The regiment was to lead the Trooping of the Colour on Thursday 2 June, as part of the Queenie Luv’s Platinum Luvvly Jubbly celebrations.

But the Ministry of Defence said the soldiers nicked would not be taking part.

An MoD spokesperson said: “As part of a planned operation the Royal Military Pigs nicked six Irish Guards soldiers and a Coldstream Guardsman veteran from across Little Britain on suspicion of conspiracy to supply drugs and money lending and laundering offences.

“None of the soldiers under investigation will participate in planned Queenie Luv’s Platinum Luvvly Jubbly parades.

“The army does not tolerate any type of illegal or fraudulent behaviour.

“As this is now the subject of an independent Royal Military Pigs investigation, it is inappropriate to comment further.”

A source at Mons Barracks in Aldershot, where the 1st Battalion Irish Guards are based, told The Scum: “They came in like the DEA (US Drug Enforcement Administration) – kicking down doors.

“There was no warning. We were told they had been planning the operation for months.

“It wasn’t just the barracks. They searched the soldiers’ homes off base. It’s all come as a huge shock.”
