8lbs of Cannabis Seized at Airport

St. Johns, Antigua February 16, 2023

Eight pounds of cannabis were seized at the V. C. Bird International Airport on Wednesday 15 February.

The police and customs officers were carrying out an anti-narcotics operation at the cargo shed, when they discovered a box with eight vacuum-sealed packages of the controlled substance inside.

The substance is estimated to value $48,000.

This is among several seizures made at both main ports of entry in recent times. On Tuesday, a large shipment of 9mm ammunition was seized at the Deep Water Harbour.

  1. It doesn’t make any sense to me. All these seizures and no arrest.We have more questions than answers. Something smells fish.🙄🙄

    • why seizing this plant and call it drugs when ras freeman have the right to grow as much as they want? is it all about control of the wealth that it brings? am asking for a feiend.

  2. Why would the police continue to shield people who import drugs into the county. Surely the boxes must have been marked and consigned to someone. Are they deliberately shielding some people from prosecution whilst going after others? Their action beats me.
