West Coast $1.6 million Drug seizure

A drug haul of over $1.6 million Barbados dollars was made last night about 8.50 pm and a joint operation between Police with the Drug Squad and the Barbados Coast Guard intercepted a vessel about 4 nautical miles off the west coast.

Due to unfavorable conditions at sea, the boat sank. Eight hundred and fourteen (814) lbs of cannabis were seized. Two men, a Barbadian and a Vincentian were detained in connection with the seizure and are currently assisting with the investigation.

A third man was on-board at the time but was not found. Rescue searches are being conducted at present.
