The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) recently seized cocaine worth over US$73,000 that was intended for Antigua and Barbuda.
The TTPS uncovered a drug trafficking network operating in the Northern Division that used local courier services to ship narcotics.
Reportedly, the network would hide the illegal drugs within legitimate cargo before sending them to their regional and international associates. On October 11, officers intercepted a package of car parts that was destined for Antigua.
Upon scanning the cargo, they discovered a package containing 363 grams of cocaine. In response to the drug seizure, Commissioner of Police Erla Christopher remarked,
“This is not only another win for the TTPS, but it is a win for all of us. Each drug interception is a setback for criminal elements. We are working with our local, regional, and international partners to dismantle these drug trafficking networks and reduce the crime they generate.”
