    Sieze: to take hold of suddenly or forcibly; to grasp:
    Did the Bush put up some form of resistance? hopefully the Bush gets its day in court. A few years ago then Sargent Vivian Augustine along with his sqaudys arrested an individual from the north who was found with cocaine in his vehicle. He owned the vehicle and even the people on Mars knew the reputation of the individual. Yet he walked away. Around the same time same squady got drugs at a boat owner yard. He too walked away because it was not found in his possession. The precedence has already been set. you cannot arrest the bush so this news is a self serving announcement by the police that is going nowhere. They will have a burning celebration in about 10 years with a depleted amount while they get high smelling the fumes along with residents of kingshill. A smart police force would set up surveillance keep the announcement secrete and instead of fighting with the Bush apprehend someone. the leadership is better at kissing…

    I don’t consider that news worthy, period. With that much drug being confiscated and no mention of suspect (s), no name. So folks, this is what we have going on in Dominica. I’m sure that the police didn’t just stumble on that much drugs. There had to be some concrete information, the location of the drugs and who may have hid the same. But that half towrie is dead on arrival. I call it “towrie” because to me, this isn’t a “story” or news worthy because it doesn’t give us no helpful and critical information. With that much dangerous drugs that have the potential to destroy our young people and we don’t know who the distributors are. So at this point, what’s the point? Drugs and Guns go hand in hand. Did the police find any guns? 😂😂😂

    Wow! Good job by the police to prevent 660 pounds of poison from being consumed by our people. This large quantity of cocaine illegally imported to the shores of Dominica is quite alarming.

    The fact that such an enormous amount of illicit drugs successfully came ashore indicates that the borders are very porous. Law enforcement should be well trained and equipped to adequately surveil the seas and the borders.

    Commendation to the person or persons to provide the police with the necessary information for the confiscation of this mind-altering substance .
