Police in Trinidad and Tobago say that they have seized a large number of pharmaceuticals with a street value of $91,200.

According to reports, yesterday, the TTPS Section coordinated an operation that included members of the Customs and Excise Division.

They said that a suspicious shipment was searched and found to contain 285 boxes containing 5,700 bottles of Enterogermina medication.

“The operation follows extensive intelligence-driven investigations conducted by the Section at a Bond in the Central Division, following information received in November 2022. Investigations have since uncovered the origin of the shipment, which the TTPS did not divulge”, according to reports.

Reports are that the package was located and secured at the “Bond and officers of the Section and the Customs and Excise Division awaited the arrival of the consignee. No one showed up to claim the package”.

The police proceeded to open the package where the illegal items were found
