    Excellent work, Officers. Thank you very much.

    We need to find the persons importing cocaine and crack into Dominica and put them in prison for life, or make them disappear!
    These drug lords are doing more harm to Dominica and damage to Dominica’s human resources then any other evil. But we are never hearing of such culprits, why not?

    OK! Somebody will have to pay for that so watch out folks and my gut feeling is that it’s not gonna be nice. Big bust in Castle Bruce, one up north and now this one in a matter of one month? Well like the saying goes; when rouges and vagabonds fall out, just men get their rewards.

    Hope those talkative cops don’t sell out their informants eh. But nonetheless, I want to say kudos to the police for a job well done. Mr. Valerie can take a bow because since taking over I can see some positive results. If he can only pullout his nose from the rear end of the SOS and stay focused on fighting crimes he will prove some of the doubters wrong. 8)
