Drugs seized at sea
The Coast Guard has seized close to $280,000 worth of marijuana during a routine patrol around 5.20 pm last Friday. A press release from the Coast Guard said the officers were near Saut D’Eau Island, off the north coast, when they intercepted and searched a 28-foot pirogue carrying two men, one from Toco Main Road, Balandra, and the other from Morne Cabrite Trace, Cumana.
The illegal drug, which weighed 13.94 kilogrammes, was reportedly in a red plastic netted bag, containing 24 black plastic packets. The vessel, the occupants and the drugs were taken to Staubles Bay, Chaguaramas, and later handed over to the Organised Crime, Narcotics and Firearms Bureau. Both men were charged with drug trafficking.
