  1. So many contraband being seized in Antigua at the ports of entries and no one is being arrested and charged. I wonder why. Is it that the police only interested in seizing these contraband and let loose the culprits to import more. Inquiring minds,want to know. It seems to me the police is afraid to investigate these cases. If they can’t investigate these cases, move aside and let competent police investigate these cases. Fed up.

    • It is possible that no one is ever arrested because there is a store in the police station that has be be replenished. Who are theses contrabands addressed to and why is no one ever arrested? Continue to play Antiguans for fools.

  2. I often wonder, after acknowledging what’s in said barrel or luggage, why not put this barrel back in place and keep that luggage rolling on the conveyor belt, while keeping a watchful eye? someone will eventually make a claim. Law enforcement find it more rewarding to BRAG about a bust and how big it is, instead of actually making an arrest. I guarantee an arrest in caes like this if thoroughly investigated, would lead to some big names.
