On Monday, 23rd July 2018, the Office of National Drug and Money Laundering Control Policy (ONDCP) conducted a counter-narcotics operation in the Cedar Valley Garden Area.

A search of an apartment complex yielded a total of 2.375lbs of Compressed Cannabis, currencies totaling One Thousand and Thirty-Five EC Dollars ($1,035.00 ECD) and several PVC barrels which are similar to those previously used in the importation of cannabis which were subsequently seized by the ONDCP.

The ONDCP was able to disrupt this drug trafficking syndicate with connections to North America where the barrels originated.

A 58-year-old Antiguan male, Kitson JARVIS who lives in Cedar Valley has been arrested in connection with the discovery and seizure.

JARVIS has been charged with Possession of Cannabis, Being Concerned in the Supply of Cannabis Possession Cannabis of with Intent to Supply and is expected to make a court appearance on Wednesday 25th July 2018.

  1. Are the barrels illegal also? I see similar barrels all over the country some used for garbage bins and some as water catchment. At what point does a barrel like that becomes an implement for drugs? Did they confiscate the barrels also, they did not mention the street value of the high grade PVC barrels.

    Tip for ONDCP go into Coolidge lots of those barrels at the side of the road not sure if they were used to import drugs from North America.

  2. If our country,is in the process of decriminalizing weed,why the constant chasing of weed by the Police?
    The culprit i suspect of breaking into my home,over a month ago,has not been questioned.
    Dude that robbed Carlisle Bay,,,,is still roaming,,,,free.
    Some may argue;,At the base of these crimes are drugs.
    And some would agree.
    Yet i can’t help making a distinction here
    There are some drugs that would cause one to sell their Morher’s TV to buy them,,,focus your Policing there ….Armed Robberies …focus there Vandalism,Theft Assaults all areas i feel the Citizenry,,,would be better served with an heavy Police focus.

  3. Is this article saying that 2.375 lbs of Compressed Cannabis were found among items in these seven barrels? Or they saying all seven barrels were filled with the Compressed drugs?

  4. Legalize it then you arrest the people that sell it in great portions. Stop the stupidness in this contry. Is either you take it away or legalize it for real.

  5. Are you seriously telling me that ONDCP confiscated only 2.375lbs. of ganja and called it a ‘great bust’ because they broke up a smuggling syndicate ??…..What does displaying 7 barrels have to do with the price of eggs in China?….absolutely nothing!! When Vanderpool was head of ONDCP, that was how you fight the drug war.
