These confiscated drugs and ammunition never appear to have any shipper and collector.
Anonymous shipment for anyone to collect, I guess.
There must be a serious underground world of ammunition trafficking taking place here.
Hopefully for once, the cover of the big fish will be exposed, and it is not only the foolish little snails that take the rap for this corruption.
My poor nation is engulfed in corruption and greed. For the love of money, man lose his soul.
WORLD “CRYSIS”: NATIONAL DESTRUCTION STARES US STRAIGHT IN THE EYES.
How many times have we seen this headline? The thing is I cannot recall ever hearing an outcome from the investigations. Why would this be any different?
Those items came into Antigua from where? Where exactly did those shipments originate. What you should have done in my opinion. Place those parcels into an area well surveilled. Then when he /she came to retrieve and clear such items you would then hold and interrogate that person. Until all questions have been answered.
That might happen. Maybe??
obviously that’s how its done in a real country Red Kool Aid. They have now notified the person intended to collect the goods that their cover have been blown and they definitely won’t come to collect them. SMH.
Has anyone been arrested or charged for the last big shipment of drugs that came in in a van? Not a word about anyone being arrested. The van was surely shipped to someone. I am sure by now the drugs have disappeared. Either the police force is very incompetent, or some big fish is involved
I guess the police were excited to get the drugs and ammunition to bring to the criminals instead of catching the criminals. No patience in waiting fir the criminal to come get the contraband.
