Three held for drug bust off Crane
Three men have been detained by police following a drug bust just off the Crane in St Philip last weekend.
A statement from the police today did not reveal the identity of the men but it said members of the Drug Squad, assisted by the Police Marine Unit and the Barbados Coast Guard, carried out the operation at sea off the Crane, St. Philip on Sunday afternoon, in which one Barbadian registered fishing boat was intercepted with three Barbadian men on board.
A subsequent search of the nearby beach discovered one duffle bag containing 54 lbs of compressed cannabis.
The detainees are being questioned in connection with the seizure.
