TRINIDAD COASTGUARD ON THE MOVE

Coast Guard seizes close to half a million dollars in marijuana

Nearly half a million dollars worth of marijuana has been seized by the Coast Guard.

The Coast Guard says that on Tuesday around 6:37 am, an interceptor, while on routine patrol, intercepted a 28-foot white pirogue in the Third Boca with two occupants on board.

The pirogue, occupants and contents on board were escorted back to Staubles Bay where further searches were conducted.

During the search two crocus bags with 59 packets of a “plant-like substance” were discovered, weighing approximately 32 kilograms with an estimated street value of TT$440,100.

The two Trinidadian occupants were detained by the Coast Guard and subsequently handed over to the Organized Crime, Narcotics and Firearms Bureau of the Police Service to continue investigations
