Last week, the French armed forces in the Caribbean seized 500 kg of cannabis estimated at over one million Euros after intercepting a go-fast boat west of Dominica.

The seizure occurred during a nighttime air-sea surveillance exercise on Friday, February 11.

The French navy vessel Germinal spotted the suspicious go-fast boat with no visible identification marks and when approached, individuals aboard the vessel began throwing bales into the sea.

The eleven bales later tested positive for cannabis, and the five people on board the boat are now in custody.

  1. why do the banks say to you that you can only change a small sum of euros? for example if you go with 200 to deposit on your account they will say you can only deposit or change 100

  2. question what is the point of throwing the goods out in the sea when the coast guard will still eventually pick it up and also arrest you? is it some kind of trick thinking the coast guard will go after the goods while the traffickers escape?
