THE DRUG SQUAD destroyed a large quantity of illegal drugs today, consisting of cannabis and cocaine.

The destruction, the second for the year, took place in the incinerator at Seawell, Christ Church supervised by senior officers of the police force, a representative of the acting chief magistrate and members of the Forensic Sciences Centre.

“These drugs were involved in matters before the court that were adjudicated, sampled and certified. Under the laws of Barbados, once this is done we can destroy. There are also drugs here that were found as recent as this week,” said acting assistant superintendent David Welch.

The breakdown of the seized contraband is as follows: 4 200.1 pounds of cannabis; 109.8 kilogrammes of cocaine and 30 827 cannabis plants. (CA)
