A juvenile was among seven persons arrested by the police yesterday in an open keel boat which contained a quantity of drugs.
Police Public relations officer Sergeant Kent Matthew reports that at 8:30 pm a coast guard vessel intercepted the boat which was being powered by two 40-horse powered Yahama outboard motors. This is the third boat of similar type the police have intercepted in three days.
The boat was on its way to Guadeloupe after being pushed out from a bay near Portsmouth.
On board the vessel were two crew members, four adult male passengers and the juvenile. Also on board was a quantity of ganja and cocaine.
All passengers were taken into custody and the boat seized, Sergeant Matthew said.
