EARLIER REPORT: Five in custody for drug bust off Dennery coast (Sept. 12, 2013)

On Wednesday, September 11, 2013 at about 11:37 pm, officers attached to the Marine Unit of the Southern Division intercepted a vessel named “Stranger” off the coast of Cap Marquis within the territorial waters of Saint Lucia.

The vessel was boarded and searched. At the time, there were five men on board, all of whom are from Dennery.

During the search, the officers recovered two packages of what appeared to be cannabis. Several other packages containing similar plant materials were recovered from the water. In total, 16 polythene bags were recovered.

The vessel was escorted to the Marine Unit along with its occupants and contents.

All the individuals were arrested and taken into custody for drug related offences. They are expected to be charged at a later date by officers attached to the Drug Unit.
