FOR THE THIRD TIME in six days, police have seized a large quantity of drugs offshore.

On Sunday, members of the Drug Squad, Police Marine Unit and the Barbados Coast Guard intercepted a vessel carrying 171 pounds of cannabis.

A yacht was also seized.

Two Bermudians are assisting with the investigation.

Last Thursday, a joint operation netted 50.5 kilos of cocaine, with a street value of $2 525 000 and 160 pounds of cannabis with a street value of $640 000.

Three men – two Barbadians and a Guyanese national – are scheduled to appear in court on Monday to answer related charged.

On Tuesday, a 29-year-old St Peter resident was arrested and later charged in connection with the seizure of 279 pounds of cannabis. (PR/SAT)
