The police have reported the seizure of just over 700 pounds of compressed ganja with an estimated street value of $2.8 million at a wharf in Kingston.
Reports from the Narcotics Division are that police were alerted to a container after Jamaica Constabulary Force’s sniffer dogs raised an alarm about 12:30 am on Sunday, March 15. The container, which was destined for an address in the United States of America, was seized. Following the finalisation of logistic arrangements, it was emptied.
During a subsequent search on Tuesday, March 17, a false compartment containing 236 parcels of ganja weighing 701 pounds was found.
No one was arrested in connection with the find.
