Cops seize ganja at soft drink factory

Po­lice have seized 12 duf­fle bags con­tain­ing mar­i­jua­na at Caribbean Bot­tlers Lim­it­ed along the Churchill Roo­sevelt High­way in Tu­na­puna.

Ac­cord­ing to ini­tial re­ports, em­ploy­ees of the com­pa­ny dis­cov­ered the drugs in a con­tain­er they were of­fload­ing and im­me­di­ate­ly con­tact­ed the po­lice. Po­lice said 13 duf­fel bags in all were found hid­den be­hind the con­tain­er, which was full of soft drinks.

Po­lice are still on the scene at this time.

This is the fourth ma­jor drug bust in re­cent weeks.

Last week po­lice seized $3.8 mil­lion worth of mar­i­jua­na and co­caine at an apart­ment at Re­gent Gar­dens, West­moor­ings. Pri­or to that, they seized in $3 mil­lion mar­i­jua­na at a house at North Val­sayn on No­vem­ber 25 and $2 mil­lion worth of mar­i­jua­na and high-pow­ered weapons and am­mu­ni­tion at an apart­ment build­ing in Cunu­pia on No­vem­ber 9.

More on this as in­for­ma­tion comes to hand.
