Six held in Jamaica’s biggest ever drug haul

KINGSTON –– Drug control authorities are celebrating one of the biggest hauls in the nation’s history.


Lieutenant Colonel Croft who directs the Office of National Drug And Money Laundering Control Policy said six people are in custody for questioning.

The Jamaican nationals were intercepted on a vessel carrying 2,300 pounds of marijuana.

So far, none of the suspects, aged 38 to 67 years, had been charged.

Croft says the estimated street value of the banned substance is in the millions and is the largest drug haul in recent years.

The operation was a joint effort between the Office of National Drug And Money Laundering Control Policy, and the Defence Force Coast Guard.
