More than half a million dollars’ worth of cannabis was discovered hidden inside a refrigerator and other household appliances at Deep Water Harbour yesterday.
The drugs were seized during an anti-narcotics sting by police with sniffer dogs, along with Customs officials.
Weighing in at just over 40 pounds, the cannabis has a street value of $536,000, a release from the police’s communications arm said. The parcels were concealed in a shipment that hailed from Canada.
Two men are currently in custody assisting police with their investigations.
