$1.6M drug bust
Two men are in police custody and the search continues for a third following a drug bust just off the west coast last night.
According to police, the Drug Squad and the Barbados Coast Guard intercepted a boat around 8.50 p.m. and seized 814 pounds of cannabis.
Lawmen say the boat sank as a result of unfavourable conditions at sea.
A Barbadian and a Vincentian were held in connection with the seizure but a third man who was onboard the vessel at the time was not found.
Rescue efforts are currently underway.
The drugs have a street value of $1.6 million.
