The phone was part of a Whatsapp group which collected drug orders. 

The Brit offered a delivery service, taking the narcotics directly to the users’ accommodation or home. 

Police said the service was mainly aimed at young British tourists spending their summer on the island. 

Across the two Whatsapp groups, police found on offer 32 types of marijuana, mushrooms, laughing gas, cocaine and ketamine. 

There were more than 400 members in the groups, with most of the deliveries taking place in party hotspot of Sant Antoni.
