    This is good news.

    Customs officers seem to be finally cooperating with the Royal Barbados Police Force in the fight against illegal guns.

    Congratulations to ACP Typee Griffith, the RBPF and the good Customs Officers.

    All law abiding Barbadians will support you in your efforts to return Barbados to a level of normalcy and civility.

    The intelligence proved you right.

    Hopefully the new measures by the AG will kick in soon.

    Other ports shall not be overlooked.

      Guns does come in containers…. Disassembled… A one or two gun may come in a barrell…… But d real big fish does use containers wid car engines, boat engines etc… Easier to slide by undetected….

    Good job but it is more important to highlight the person’s responsibe and make sure they do not see freedom anymore. Someone had to ship them, go after the persons sending and those receiving.

    Where is Mr. McDowald’s mouth now? The Attorney General is responsible for the police force, so why when the police fail or is seen to have failed you call for the the Attorney General’s head, but now they do good work he can’t get the credit. You can’t be like that.
