Authorities make ‘significant’ drug bust – sources

Authorities in Saint Lucia made a ‘significant’ drug bust on Friday 31st March 2017, reliable sources have revealed.
According to information obtained by the Times, a joint operation involving Police and Customs authorities resulted in the recovery of 40 rectangular blocks of cannabis in a container on the Castries docks.
The  Times was informed that the cannabis had a total weight of  over 36 kilos and a street value of nearly a quarter of a million dollars.
The container in which the cannabis was found  was reportedly consigned to a locally registered commercial enterprise.
It is reported that the drug operation spanned one week during which containerized cargo arriving in Saint Lucia was examined.

    Many local enterprises act as a conduit for drug money and could be involved in the movement of contraband across the region.

    Many of these enterprises that ship down containers only rent the shipping space and do not control what else is shipped with it…The contraband is just as likely put there by the shipping parties, and would of been cleared out once the company received all it’s goods and the container is on it’s way back out of the island…Y’all too quick to accuse!! Many of our local companies are legit and contribute to CSR…….I also believe that the government has yet again wasted out tax dollars and resources seizing a crop that shouldn’t be labeled as contraband, just legalize it and go after the harder stuff that actually destroys lives!

    Thats our. Police pick up the drugs empty handed rather than scope, strategize and lie in wait for the consignee.
    Its as though all that matters is getting the drugs rather than the drugs and the drug operators.

      Perhaps if they wait for the consignee to receive the drugs then their good buddies in the private sector will be exposed. So the consignee was granted a favour by his friends in Customs and the Police.
