Jamaican narcotics police announced yesterday, Sunday, Nov. 16 that marijuana destined for St. Lucia was seized at the Kingston Wharves.

The seizure was made on Friday, November 14 by members of the Transnational Crime and Narcotics Division (TCND).

The Associated Press (AP) reported that 41 packages containing marijuana was hidden in a shipment of chairs destined for St. Lucia.

However, another news source – On the Ground News Report – stated that 33 packages, weighing about 70 pounds, and stashed among chairs were seized.

No one was arrested in connection with the seizure.

This is not the first time marijuana destined for St. Lucia was seized in Jamaica.

In late 2012, TCND and other Jamaica law enforcement officials, seized a 20-feet container that arrived on board a vessel from Korea. The container was searched and found to contain parcels of compressed ganja weighing about 3,153 pounds. The container was destined for St. Lucia.

In late 2007, the Jamaican police seized 119 packets, weighing 400 pounds, of compressed marijuana, which was attached to the base of five Jacuzzis destined for St. Lucia. The seizure was made at the Port of Kingston during a routine check.

Jamaica is thought to be the Caribbean’s largest producer and exporter of marijuana, AP reported.

  1. The consignment should have been allowed to be shipped to SLU and wait for the receiver to clear the shipment off the wharf. That way you have a wider circle of criminals to buss. When you buss the shipment before it leaves, what do you have ?? Unless of course they don't trust the SLU authorities.....hmmmm
