Nearly four million in drugs incinerated

The Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF) today continued its efforts at ridding the island of illegal drugs.

The RBPF destroyed 7,500 marijuana trees, 1,600 pounds of loose marijuana and 4.5 kilogrammes of cocaine at the incinerator at the Bridgetown Port.

Assistant Superintendent of Police Peter Gibson, who supervised the operation, said the marijuana had a total street value of $3.5 million, while the cocaine was worth $250,000.

Gibson said the drugs were seized from various locations around the island in 2016 and during the first half of 2017 and that the related court matters had been fully adjudicated.
