The drug has an estimated street value of $3.2 million. No one was arrested in connection with the seizure. Commanding Officer for Narcotics Division, Senior Superintendent of Police, McArthur Sutherland says “We are of the view that this drug was intended for Haiti in support of the illegal drugs for guns trade operations between smugglers from the two nations.
