Queen’s guards arrested over drug and money laundering scam days before Jubilee

Published

Six British soldiers and a veteran were arrested on suspicion of cocaine and money laundering offenses just days before the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations, the UK’s Ministry of Defense confirmed to The Post.

The seven suspects were detained early Wednesday during a raid carried out by the Royal Military Police at their barracks in England, BBC News reports.

Raids also reportedly took place at a property in Windsor, as well as in Wales and Northern Ireland. The veteran involved is a former officer in the Coldstream Guards.

The six Irish soldiers are with the 1st Battalion Irish Guards, who are set to lead the iconic “Trooping the Color” military parade to celebrate Her Majesty’s 70 years on the throne on Thursday.

“As part of a planned operation, the Royal Military Police arrested six Irish Guards soldiers and a Coldstream Guardsman veteran from across the UK on suspicion of conspiracy to supply drugs and money lending and laundering offenses,” the British Army told The Post in a statement.

“The Army does not tolerate any type of illegal or fraudulent behavior. As this is now the subject of an independent Royal Military Police investigation, it is inappropriate to comment further.”

The Ministry of Defense confirmed none of the soldiers under investigation will be participating in the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations, set to begin next week.

Five of the guards were released on bail, according to The Mirror.

Buckingham Palace did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.

The Irish Guards have been the most operationally active unit in the British Army over recent years.

The Queen’s grandson and second in line to the throne, Prince William, is Colonel of the Irish Guards.

The Irish Guards was formed in 1900 by Queen Victoria. In recent years they’ve been deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan, Cyprus, and the Falkland Islands.

Indiana officials say child found stuffed in suitcase died from electrolyte imbalance

An unidentified 5-year-old boy who was found dead stuffed inside of a suitcase in the Indiana woods last month died from an electrolyte imbalance, according to autopsy results released on Friday.

The victim, who is described as a 5-year-old black boy, was first discovered by a mushroom forager near a roadway in Washington County on April 16 in a suitcase covered with the colorfully famous Las Vegas logo, officials said.

Police are still working to identify the boy. 

An electrolyte imbalance can occur due to a lack of fluids in the body — which can cause diarrhea and vomiting, WKYT reported.

His toxicology report came back negative and he suffered no severe injuries, officials said.

The public has requested law enforcement investigate where the uniquely decorated luggage the boy was found in originated. However cops said this would not assist the investigation as they are seeking stronger evidence, the outlet reported.

“We’re well aware of that information,” Sgt. Carey Huls with Indiana State Police said. “We don’t need that type of information on the suitcase. That has been well looked into by our detectives, but if someone has first-hand knowledge of that suitcase in this area, that would be different. We would definitely like to have that information.”

No arrests have been made in the case and the investigation is ongoing.
