Multi-million dollar drug bust

Law enforcement authorities have made their second major drug bust in as many days.

Lawmen seized  50.5 kilograms of cocaine with a street value of $2, 525,000.00, and 160 pounds of marijuana with a street value of $640,000 last night during a joint operation off Maxwell coast, involving the Barbados Coast Guard, the Police Marine Unit, the Drug Squad and the Regional Security System, when they intercepted a vessel with two Barbadians on board.

The men, aged 64 and 42, have been taken into custody.

On Tuesday, lawmen seized 279 pounds of marijuana from a fishing vessel off the shores of Barbados.  A 29-year-old man is in custody assisting police with their investigations.

    Well done guys.

    Keep up the good work.

    Now focus, focus on how the guns are entering Barbados and put a dent into that also.

    Hahaha oh dear. It would be silly to even contemplate that this bust will make any KIND of impact. This ocean is full of many colorful fish, and varieties. We got great whites, whales, dolphins, guppies, mackerels, sardines and even micro fish. Make a guess which fish this net will catch???? And which fish is left. Problem remains.

    To make things worst, the T&T PM just stop funding to the crime fighting helicopter project and got them grounded. Hope the Leaders take a look at this when they meet in Grenada or we going to be in for some serious gun-play and more drugs on the streets.
    This kind of funding should be a joint venture of CARICOM.

    These drugs importer have no idea how technology work. Barbados law enforcement have lots of technical tools to use thanks to our friends around the world. Drome can stay over you for days watching your every move without you even notice.

    Satellite tracking. If you enter our territorial waters without making the required contacts then you are monitored immediately. It’s that simple. Even those vessels with ligitimate landing rights are monitored these days. Any unusual behavior awakens partners involved in securing our regional borders.

      Absolutely. Modem marine navigation can track you the moment you cross the invisible maritime line of ours without calling in via the SVRS. failure to do that get the attention of the authorities.

    Great Job. Well Done. Time to buy more Deep sea coast guard vessels. I want to see the confiscation of these vessels as well as the foreign vessels that continue to rape our fishing grounds.
