Dope in cars

The 38 pounds of marijuana valued at $156 000 found in the trunks

of two racing cars at the Bridgetown Port yesterday.

A six-month operation by the Drug Squad and Customs Department led to the discovery yesterday at the Bridgetown Port of 38 pounds of marijuana valued at $156 000 in the trunks of two racing cars, which arrived from Jamaica to participate in this weekend’s Digicel/Williams Seaboard Marine International Race Meet.

Head of the Police Drug Squad, Superintendent Grafton Phillips, told theWEEKEND NATION that two men were being questioned by the police – one a member of the Barbados Auto Racing League, host of the big racing event, and a Jamaican, who was associated with that country’s team.

“The Drug Squad over the last six months has been carrying out operations targeting containers coming from source countries and [yesterday], with the assistance of the Customs Department, we checked three containers which arrived from Jamaica last Thursday,” Phillips said.

He added that in those containers were racing cars which were imported for this weekend’s event.

Why are these cars not dismantle ?

The cars are going to run in an upcoming competition they should be in the evidence garage.

As you can see Jamaican/Barbadian haters Barbados is a lucrative market for the enterprising criminal both "BAJANS" and "Yardies " alike.

Hard working (legal trades) Jamaicans and others are welcome in Barbados !

This is just an example how some people wanted to boost their  bank account on the backs of the populous..
