September 07, 2016

Three men were taken into custody for breaches of the Dangerous Drugs Act by members of the Narcotics Division in Bushy Park in St Catherine yesterday.

Reports are that between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., a snap operation was carried out, and 71 pounds of loose ganja, a hydraulic jack, one compressor, masking tape and other wrapping paraphernalia were found.

The illicit drug is suspected to have been part of the drugs-for-guns trade and has an estimated street value of J$568,000.

The men are to be interviewed in the presence of their attorneys, and, thereafter, formal charges will be laid.
