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.
