  1. They may not be able to solve a crime if it was sitting on their lap, but u have to give them credit for sniffing out weed. A&B police can find weed anywhere u hide it. If weed possession was the only crime in A&B, we would have the best performing police force in the world..

    …but na gee dem no robbery or ask dem fu find missing persons. Dat anna fu dem jab. SMDH

  2. Why so frequent discoveries of cannabis at the port? This can only mean one thing, the port workers are involved. The authorities have to screen the port workers. Set up cameras at the off loading sites and in the bond and have customs security monitoring the screens. Goods being cleared must be sniffed by those trained canines.
