Title:Operation Julie: How the Undercover Police Team Smashed the Worlds Greatest Drugs Ring
Hutchinson, New Zealand, 1978. Previous owner's name on front endpaper. Minor fading and scuffing to cover. Operation Julie was a UK police investigation into the production of LSD by two drug rings during the mid-1970s. The operation, involving 11 police forces over a 2 1/2 year period, resulted in the break-up of one of the largest LSD manufacturing operations in the world. It culminated in 1977 with enough LSD to make 6.5 million ‘tabs’ with a then street value of £100m (equivalent to £610 million today) being seized, 120 people arrested in the UK and France and over £800,000 discovered in Swiss bank accounts.
