Inflow of illegal drug continues, with police making third discovery of cannabis at a port in just over one week


REAL NEWS: Drugs seem to be coming into this country at an alarming rate, even as the Police have conducted another successful drug-interdiction exercise – the third in just over one week since the New Year began.

Officers from the Narcotics Department and Customs Enforcement Unit Task Force conducted the joint operation at the V.C. Bird International Airport FedEx Cargo Storage Shed.

During the search, one brown FedEx cardboard box was found to contain four vacuumed-sealed packages with cannabis.  The illegal substance weighs four pounds and has an estimated street value of $24,000.

As investigations into the discovery continue, the box and its contents were taken to Police Headquarters.

This find reportedly occurred at about 2:30 p.m. on January 9.

Persons are expressing the hope that, this year, instead of just confiscating the drugs, the Police will detain, arrest and charge those responsible for the importation of the illegal substance.

  1. how stupid can elwe be in this country? why is weed being called drugs when it is decrimimalized and persons have license to grow as much as they can in this country? the issue is not really the weed its about the control of the wealth that it brings. its ok once the wealth is going to the few that wants to hold the monopoly on the controlled substance. *THIS IA ALL ABOUT WHO GETS THE MONEY FROM THE SALE OF TYE WEED*

  2. So this steady stream of drugs is being stored at the police headquarters…what could go wrong? Aside from that, it sounds to me like a distraction, or maybe just a brute force attempt
