Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) has seized over US$73,000 worth of cocaine which was destined for Antigua and Barbuda.
A drug trafficking network was uncovered by TTPS in the Northern Division. The network shipped narcotics hidden amongst legitimate cargo through local courier services to their regional and international connections.
On October 11, a package containing car parts for Antigua was intercepted by a team of officers.
A scan of the cargo revealed 363 grams of cocaine. In response to the drug seizure, Commissioner of Police, Erla Christopher, stated that it was a win not only for TTPS but for everyone else.
Every drug interception is a setback for criminal elements. TTPS is working in partnership with local, regional, and international allies to dismantle drug trafficking networks and reduce the crime that they generate.
