Within two days, law-enforcement agencies have executed another successful drug-interdiction exercise, this time at the Deep Water Harbour.
A shipment of cannabis with an estimated street value of $96,000 was seized at the Port, following a joint drug operation between the Police and Customs Department.
Twelve (12) pounds of the controlled substance were discovered in 16 vacuum-wrapped packets inside a barrel on Tuesday, June 14, and the barrel and its contents were seized and taken to Police Headquarters.
Further investigations are said to be ongoing into the matter.
It was only on Sunday, June 12, that 110 pounds of cannabis, with an estimated street value of $880,000, were seized at the V.C. Bird International Airport.
This latest haul takes the amount of cannabis seized this year to 650 pounds.
All these drugs are expected to be burnt during the annual drug-destruction exercise.
Meanwhile, residents continue to ask why – with the volume of drugs seized at the ports – not one arrest has come out of the police investigations.
