£280,000 worth of herbal cannabis has been seized from a yacht at Sovereign Harbour.
Police boarded the vessel just after midnight yesterday (9 June).
Two men are due before Brighton Magistrates at 10am this morning.
Anthony Keiran Poyser, 28, and Harrison Law, 21, both of no fixed address, are each charged with being jointly concerned in the improper importation of cannabis to the United Kingdom.
Chief Inspector Emma Brice, Eastbourne district police commander, said, "I am aware of the concern about the security of smaller ports and harbours around Britain's coastline.
"I would like to reassure people that police are alert to the situation and will respond whenever circumstances demand."
