Suspected Drug Smugglers Arrested After Rescuing Police Officers From The Sea
This strange incident occurred early on Friday morning when the police started to chase after a boat 'with four people on board that was suspected of transporting drugs'.
In the midst of their chase, the two boats ended up in a collision and some of the officers on board were chucking into the sea as their vessel 'span out of control'.
The coppers made a plea to the speedboat via a megaphone on the police helicopter overhead, and the three suspected drugs traffickers actually helped out.
They span their craft around and, in the end, pulled the three police agents from the water safely.
That was nice of them, wasn't it?
Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to bail them out of their troubles.
The police then discovered 3,000kg of hashish - cannabis resin - in the waters nearby. Even if they are heroes, they can't get away with that too easily, right?

Four alleged smugglers were then arrested after the police successfully pulled more than 80 bundles full of drugs from the sea.
A police statement said: "They were arrested for drug trafficking."
Conclusive proof that no good deed goes unpunished.
While these guys might have been the heroes, there was another incident recently that is potentially even more bizarre.
A woman was pulled over for a routine traffic stop the other day in Arkansas, whilst Officer Kenneth Looney was booking Jessica Bernice Kropp for a string of offences and discovering that she had a load of outstanding warrants against her, he also noticed that she had a bundle of meth strapped to her head, disguised as hair bow.
That's either absolute genius or abject stupidity. It probably depends on whether you get caught or not.
In his affidavit, Officer Looney wrote: "As I was detaining Jessica Kropp, I observed what appeared to be a bow in her hair. The bow appeared to be a small, zip-locked bag containing a white crystal-like substance of suspected methamphetamine.
"The baggie had a small rubber band around the middle, giving it a bow shape and was attached to a bobby pin. The substance was affixed to the right side of her head, attached to her hair.
"I said, 'Are you serious?' She said, 'What?' I said, 'You have a bow in your hair made from a bag of meth.' She said, '[expletive deleted], I didn't know that was there, someone else put that there and I didn't know what it was.'"
She was arrested and charged with drugs offences. Her bail was set at $23,210 (£18843.15).
