The Police reported that  “Nine men, including a senior customs officer, have been arrested in a drug bust that seized cannabis with a street value of more than $14 million.

A police spokesman said that officers intercepted two vehicles on Wednesday as they left the executive jet facility at the LF Wade International Airport in St George’s.

A search of the individuals and their luggage led to police recovering “a significant quantity” of cannabis, with an estimated street value of more than $14 million, said the spokesman.

The seizure was part of a wider drug bust dubbed Operation Furud and led to search warrants at residences in Pembroke, Hamilton Parish, Warwick, and Southampton.

Nine suspects were arrested, one of whom was a senior officer with the Department of Customs.
