Trinidad: Massive Inter Island drug bust-multi-million dollar marijuana seizure

Colombian national was arrested and marijuana with a street value of TT$72.04 million (One TT$=US$0.37 cents) was seized following months of surveillance, intelligence gathering and collaboration with regional law enforcement agencies.

This is the culmination of an investigation that started in June 2020, when officers of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) began investigations into a person of interest who was suspected of controlling a drug ring based in Central Trinidad with regional and international links, according to a TTPS statement.

It said the suspect and another man then boarded a flight to Barbados in late June 2022, Barbados law enforcement was notified, and their assistance was requested.

“The TTPS continued gathering intelligence and maintained relations with Barbados law enforcement, and as a result discovered that on July 29, a shipment of drugs landed in Barbados.

“This intelligence was further developed and on August 2,  Barbados law enforcement breached the “stash house” in Barbados where they found and seized 481kilogrammes of marijuana with a street value of TT $72,063,420. “

One Colombian national was also arrested at the house.

Investigations are continuing.
