Hong Kong Squadron - heroin ?

Not sure if this belongs in here or 'History' but hopefully the moderators will do what's necessary - if need be.

Quick silly question re the old HK Squadron.

I was lucky enough to spend 6 weeks with HMS Swift back in 1987. Visited Pusan and Japan then back to HK.

Apparently around 1988 a couple of the Chinese ratings were nicked for smuggling heroin.

Was anyone there who knows the true story? RP's ?
