Three sanitation workers employed by a private company in Vieux Fort were arrested Thursday for the possession of marijuana.
Law enforcement sources told St Lucia Times that the three were held outside Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF) at around 12:30 pm, after a routine search of the garbage truck in which they had arrived to collect garbage from the facility was conducted.
A quantity of cannabis was found hidden beneath a floor mat.
According to reports, none of the men took responsibility for the drugs.
The three were arrested and taken to the Dennery Police Station.
