Marine police officers arrested five Saint Lucians and four non-nationals for possessing drugs and other contraband over the past few days.
The non-nationals included boat owners and captains from Martinique, Dominica and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
Officers arrested them and the locals for possession of marijuana and having conch without a permit.
In one case, the Marine Police seized a local vessel for evading customs duties and other offences as law enforcement officials crack down on illegal activities at sea.
There are no further details at present.
