  1. “There were no writings on the packages indicating who the packages belongs to”

    Well every time I have things sent to me, it seems that it belongs to me once it is posted. I never get money back if it dont arrive. I think it something to do with common law , so unless it wasnt addressed to somebody, it belong to the adressee.
    Certainly looks like a label on them packages.

    Besides that, a few decades ago, police forces learned that its quite useful to identify the contraband, then wait for the criminals to collect them, thus giving them a robust case when proceeding to court.
    Once again we see the Antigua Police have no interest in actually doing any police work.
    Criminals, kindly turn yourself in, to the nearest airconditioned police office ,coz we aint stepping 1 foot out to come get you.

  2. Hallmarks of what would have been an inside job. Why when drugs are detected they are not placed under surveillance to catch the importer? Is that why these importers have become fearless overtime as it appears the authorities are only interested in the drugs and for what reason I ask?

  3. The packages should be distributed as such amongst politicians, technocrats and ordinary citizens who use the good stuff as follows HL, CM, IC, VP, EC, SQ..

    Fell free to add so each person does not get more than one package!

  4. Send that dirt back !! This country has the worse ganja at the most outrageous prices. Our laws and views towards the plant are wonderful. Organize this dumbness already !! We need proper smoke to work hard and do good !!

  5. Focus on BREAKING and ENTERINGS
    Focus on STRONGARMED ROBBERIES
    Focus more on following the weed trail to Guns.
    Not soo much on seizing a quantity of weed,
    with no recipient of said transported weed in sight
