    • EXACTLY!
      Mysteriously cannabis is always found but receiver never appear to be brought to justice.
      Is this an ongoing PR stunt by Police?

    • They belong to people in high places whose names won’t be revealed. Drugs have been very profitable to governments around the world — Antigua is no exception. How many seizures have we read about and no further information given. The authorities are all in on it. Why do you think the US military was in Afghanistan for 20 years having soldiers guarding the poppy fields? Y’all bettah wake up and realize that the biggest criminals are the ones within the power structure.
      The reporting of drug seizure serves as nothing more than gaslighting of the people.

  1. It’s like the authorities are purposefully shielding drug importers these days. I cannot see the logic of taking the drugs but shielding the consignee from prosecution. The package must have been addressed to someone. Practical and tactical policing would suggest that they should have the package under surveillance until such time that it is picked up by the consignee. We have been hearing of more drugs being intercepted at the ports and post office and that is good but nothing about the prosecution of anyone.
