$1m marijuana bust in Tobago
Police have seized more than $1million worth of compressed marijuana in Tobago. The haul was made on Sunday night at Buccoo beach. Investigators believe the high-grade marijuana came from St Vincent. Police sources said officers from the Tactical Unit were on patrol in the Buccoo area when they saw men carrying crocus bags on their heads. The men dropped the bags and ran when they saw the officers.
No one was held. The police checked the bags and found 101.74 kilogrammes of compressed marijuana. At a news conference at the Scarborough Police Station yesterday acting Senior Superintendent Garfield Moore said the discovery had put a severe dent in the drug trade in Tobago. He said drug traffickers would have offloaded the marijuana from pirogues.
