Law enforcement agents made a major drug bust in Toucari on Monday during an operation that netted some 1,500 pounds of cannabis.
The drug was discovered during a joint operation between customs, the drug squad, the coast guard and Portsmouth police.
Police Public Relations Officer Inspector John Carbon said the bust was made at 7:00 am in Toucari Bay which is situated between Portsmouth and Capuchin.
At the same time an open keel speed boat, which the police say is connected to the Toucari bust, was intercepted by the coast guard five nautical miles west of Canefield.
Two individuals were arrested in the boat and are assisting the police in their investigations.
