REAL News is reliably informed that officers, including members of the Drug Squad, K9 Unit and Customs Taskforce, executed a search warrant at the man’s home on June 15 at about 5:40 p.m.

A source says the warrant was executed in connection with a drug-trafficking investigation.

However, during the search for illegal substances, the officers found two large Protein bottles with wads of cash amounting to EC$172,736.65 and US$0.95.

The bottles had been concealed in a chest of drawers in the FedEx employee’s bedroom.

The suspect, along with the money, were transported to Police Headquarters pending further investigations.

Meanwhile, officers reportedly contacted officials of the Proceeds of Crime Unit to inform them of the quantity of money discovered at the Golden Grove residence.

The cash was counted in the presence of those officials, the Drug Squad, and the suspect, the source says.

The Proceeds of Crime Unit is reportedly conducting inquiries into the matter.

  1. Since when having money is a crime? I hope they don’t lose the man’s money. However the warrant was issued for a drug matter, that money could be owed to someone and I hope he’s not using his place of work for inappropriate transactions! Oh my!

  2. Wait so people can’t work and save up them money? Is not everyone believe in bank. Other high officials pickney have millions how come are you nar go after them. Life is unfair

  3. What rediculiousness am I reading at all? Is it a crime now to have large amounts of cash at your home? Under what grounds was the Ex FedEx employee was taken into custody and their cash confiscated? What crime did they commit? They went to search for drugs but didn’t find any but cash which they seized. Now tell me can they link the cash to any drug laundering they they may suspect? That Ex FedEx employee needs to sue the police for wrongful arrest. Can’t the police here get right for once. They do need proper training!?

  4. Firstly it was because of a drug matter that was being investigated and I suppose his name was called for such search warrant to be carried out on his premises. Also as for the search warrant anything that is found to be suspicious or out of the ordinary, it is within the law that the police have rights to scrutinize and investigate the suspicious objects, substance or whatever. Irregardless if it was saved or box money. Their investigation and his cooperation will determine what is what.

  5. You’re suppose to put your money in the band .. why? So the bank can lend other people and make thousands of dollars off of it while they charging you to have your money there and to take some of it .. what rubbish.. cut the man money free.. gwan go investigate gaston and where he get all his money from

  6. Maybe he does not trusts Banks with his money. When I grew up in Antigua the older folks back then worked and kept monies in their homes. I knew for a fact that my mother back then had wads of cash under her bed. She would show me where the money is hidden,just in case anything happened to her.The Police search was legit. However,finding that money does not mean it is not legit either.In my opinion the Bank is the safe place to secure those funds.Then again are the Banks really secured with your funds. Are individuals funds in the Banks Insured ?
