The PMS drew the attention of reporters to the first annual report published by SOCA today which said that in the first year, SOCA seized 73 tonnes of cocaine with a market value in excess of £3 billion, at the cost to drug traffickers of at least £125 million, working with police forces they prevented 35 potential murders and have an initial target list of 1600 of the most harmful criminals in the UK.

Asked if the reported drug seizures were an increase on previous years, the PMS said that it was the first annual report from SOCA. Asked if the Home Office, or whoever, collate seizure data from prior to SOCA being established, the PMS suggested that reporters check with the department.
