Over $60,000 worth of marijuana was seized by the police during a recent drug interdiction operation conducted at the V.C. Bird International Airport.

Reports are that officers from the Narcotics Department and K9 Unit went on duty at the airport about 4:20 p.m. on Wednesday (April 19) where a joint drug interdiction exercise was conducted with assistance from the Customs Enforcement Unit.

Further reports are that a search was carried out at the LIAT cargo shed, during which one brown cardboard box was searched and 11 large vacuumed sealed packages with marijuana was discovered.

The substance reportedly weighs 10 ½ pounds with an estimated street value of $63,000.

Reports are that the box along with the substance was taken to Police Headquarters for further investigation purposes.

  1. Jeez
    Stop with this police bravado for weed please – they never report catching the person who collect it or send it.
    We have home invasions, armed robberies & rape happening, get on with real police work to keep the citizens, residents and tourists SAFE.

  2. And that’s the last we will hear about the weed.

    The government should open their own joint and start selling confiscated weed.

  3. What baffles me is that everyone can grow their own weed in Antigua as long as it is four plants. Where then is the market to import weed. Is it that the Antigua weed is not good enough?

    • The legal weed establishment is probably running low on stock. The Police know who the weed belongs to.
