First Major Drug Bust for 2023 recorded in Antigua and Barbuda



The Police and Customs Department have seized a sizeable amount of Cannabis at one of the main ports of entry on Friday.

Both law enforcement agencies conducted a joint drug operation at the Deep Water Harbour and discovered 52 vacuum-sealed packages of Cannabis weighed 52 pounds.

The substance is valued at EC $312,000, and is recorded as the first major drug seizure so far for the year.

In 2022, million of dollars’ worth of Cannabis were seized between the two main ports of entry by both law enforcement agencies.

This include 7 ½ pounds of Hashish that were found washed ashore in Barbuda in December.

Investigations remain ongoing.

  2. Me a wait for somebody to be arrested. But since the drugs were sent to nobody, I can only conclude that the store at the police station needs replenishing.

  3. There must be something I don’t know, for it still baffles me as to why they just don’t wait to see how comes to collect the drugs from the ports, and trace back to see who the shipper of the drugs is / are.

    There must be something that we’re not told as to why this is done
