Cannabis found in bags of rice

Almost 40 pounds of cannabis was discovered hidden in bags of rice during a joint drug operation between police and customs.

The contraband was found among other food items at the Deep Water Harbour on Friday. It is estimated to be worth EC$316,000, and was taken to Police Headquarters pending further investigations.

 For the month of August, the two law enforcement agencies seized a total of 122 pounds of cannabis estimated at EC$976,000.

The seizures were made at both main ports of entry and the General Post Office.

One person was charged and taken before the court, while several others were taken into custody and questioned.
