Drug busts at checkpoints on the George Price Highway

Drug seizures are often the result of intelligence-led operations conducted by personnel from the police department or, in some cases, a collaborative interagency effort utilizing such information.  Whether police at a checkpoint along the George Price Highway were tipped off about narcotics onboard two individual passenger buses or the subsequent busts were the outcome of a random stop and search is anyone’s guess.  On Wednesday morning, officers stationed at the post stopped a BBOC bus and upon searching it, discovered a black sling bag containing one thousand, eight hundred grams or the equivalent of four pounds of cannabis.  A short while later, a Shaw’s bus was also pulled over.  Tucked beneath a seat was a pink and black schoolbag containing two thousand, twenty-five grams or roughly four and half pounds of cannabis.  In both instances the bags containing the drugs were not claimed and were labeled and deposited as found property.

    The bus driver should get charge. They know very good what is going on. Is very safe for drugdealers to use the buses pay some $$$ to the driver and if police finds it no one gets arrested.
