Police seize drugs on St. Lucian vessel, two arrested

Police said they seized 259.5 pounds of cannabis in a boat off the Soufriere Coast on August 18, 2013.

A press release states that the drugs were found when two locals were intercepted in a St. Lucian Pirogue vessel “In God We Trust” at about 10 a.m. 7.7 nautical miles off the coast and within St. Lucia’s territorial waters.

The release states that marine personnel attached to the southern division, upon searching the vessel and its occupants, found the drugs.

“Both individuals were subsequently arrested and taken into custody for the offences of possession of a controlled drug and possession with the intent to supply a controlled drug.,” the release said.

“Charges are expected to be laid against them at a later date. Investigations are currently ongoing,” it further stated.

  1. we need to stop wasting public resources to go after and prosecute persons who sell weed its a complete waste of tax payers monies, why don't we arrest the politicians who embezzle thousands in tax payers money or make the wrong decisions which cost tax payers millions. Better yet why can't police officers who engage in the killing of civilians be brought to justice or the the commissioner can tell us why was he prevented from entering the US. We need to stop persecuting persons who are just trying to make ends meet.

  3. People are trying to make a living in St.Lucia. Lately there has been a lot of arrest for cannibis but what I don't get is why? There is nothing wrong with Cannibis.

  4. Listen this is totally bullshit! Sorry to say but they found more studies of cannabis been really good for the body! Government need to stop putting people in jail for petty herbal stuff which is actually good for the body! Was even on CNN by Dr Sanjay Gupta " http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiDpYl6waQ0&feature=share" government need to stop acting like it harms people and start to sell it so people don't have to risk their lifes for something that is good for the body! in main ways! look now the US is starting to realize all the crap they said about weed isn't true and finally what was once a taboo is now something people actually open their eyes and see the true value of it !
