Police investigating drugs found in shipment

Police are investigating the discovery of 210 lbs of cannabis found in a container shipped to a St Michael business from Jamaica.

According to police public relations officer Inspector David Welch, the compressed cannabis was discovered by Customs personnel on duty at the establishment on Roberts Road, Haggatt Hall, St Michael. He did not identify the business.

He said it was around 9:40 am today when the container was being checked that Customs officers found the 63 packages of marijuana in three duffle bags and two polythene bags.

Welch said the shipment carrying the illegal drugs was delivered to the business on Tuesday after arriving from Jamaica.

    Getting real bad? As in..u think this is something new to Barbados? LOL. All this is, is a case of someone in Customs not holding up their end of the deal because the ‘grease’ money demanded was not paid or something. So much goes on here that you ppl don’t have a clue about…think back to when officers in the port kicked up a stink abt cameras being placed down there. Now use ur imaginations. Ya tink weed now start to sell in Bim?? Ya tink for decades weed only been coming in on small vessels? LOL. No, no..
