  1. Who can explain how they have so much rental car companies being advertised on these stickers on vehicle back glassss? Are these companies washing machines?

      • The statement is not irrelevant, Just Saying is pointing to the fact that purchasing reconditioned vehicles on line and operating rental companies is a cash based operations which allow for individuals to launder money. If you are saying that the statement is inaccurate that is another story, but the statement is very much relevant.

    • What is wrong with you? Weed is not cocaine. We can legally have 15 grams and four trees. Tourists and visitors call for the strain they know…. so… this is the black market in EVERY tourist destination, so don’t get ahead of yourself.

      • Exactly Frank. He sounds like a gassy ass,

        The police knows who it belongs to. Could be for them and customs too.

      • Perhaps you didn’t notice that it is “AN ILLEGAL SUBSTANCE”. It is NOT legal in Antigua. Get your head out of the fantasy world and face the reality. The operatie words are ILLEGAL SUBSTANCE. Lock ’em up.

        • Just relax… 15 grams is legal in πŸ‡¦πŸ‡¬. Maybe you are still living in the past. Lock dem up for wha? Just ‘llow de weed.

  2. Am I missing something here? Want to believe the authorities know their task, however…Why not attach a tracking device to monitor its movement then make an arrest on the person who claim the cargo…..Or they do NOT trust the folks who will be monitoring the cargo?

  3. What is wrong with you, CErmle?

    Not even murderers and rapists get life in prison. Jeeze…

  4. A cargo like this should have two address; one where it is coming from and two where it is going both on the cargo manifest and on the cargo itself. This mean the police shouldn’t have no delay in wrapping up this case.

    • You are absolutely right. Go get ’em. Lock ’em up. They lucky this ain’t the Phillipines, where they shoot drug dealers and users. Bring out the dogs GO GET ‘EM!
