While many residents are pleased about the recent string of successful drug-interdiction exercises, they are wondering where the authorities are getting these tips and asking about the previous years’ attempts.
A source says that police officers from the Drugs Squad and Customs Enforcement Unit conducted yet another operation at the V.C. Bird International Airport FedEx Storage Shed and discovered a further five pounds of cannabis.
The drug reportedly was concealed in six vacuumed-sealed packages inside a cardboard box and carries an estimated street value of $40,000.
The box and its contents were seized and transported to Police Headquarters, where further investigations are ongoing.
This operation reportedly was conducted at about 9:30 a.m., on June 21, and is the second such exercise within days at the FedEx Storage Shed.
A source says he finds it strange that, since talk began about the increase in marijuana use among school children, the Police have been on a drug-busting spree.
This is the first time he has seen so many consecutive drug busts at the country’s ports of entry, he remarks. REAL NEWS

Let me ask the people that sending drugs into this country I would like to are they retarted or stupid, because this doesn’t make no kind of sense. My words never drop to ground as the most high is showing me that many will be drunk into this nonsense. Prime Minister where is your mouth cat got your tongue. We need to pray for our youths as the devil is creeping his way in with this stupidity.
Packages or cargos coming out of large countries like America, Canada and England are normally scanned before leaving their port. Once they saw the drugs, they would allowed the drugs to continue it destination and then notified the relevant authorities in those countries. They would even sent ahead the flight or cargo ship/boat informations the drugs are on including pictures of containers the drugs are stored.
Rather suspicious that they’re confiscating these drugs without waiting to see who comes to collect them. What has happened to the ONDCP? Why aren’t they in on any of the recent operations? Very Suspicious if you ask me
