Inflow of cannabis continues at country’s ports: another package discovered at airport cargo shed

A joint drug-interdiction operation was conducted on the weekend at the V.C. Bird International Airport’s Cargo Shed and netted close to $25,000 worth of marijuana.

Several officers – from the Narcotics Department and the K9 Unit, along with the Customs Task Force – went on duty at the airport’s Customs Transit Shed at about 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 18.  

There, a brown cardboard box was searched and four vacuumed-sealed packages were found.  Each contained a greenish bushy substance resembling the controlled drug cannabis.

The substance found was weighed and amounted to four pounds, with an estimated street value of $24,000.

As is procedure, the box and its contents were taken to Police Headquarters for further investigation purposes.
