Retired Officer’s Arrest a Surprise to Colleague

A.C.P. Alford Grinage

So, if the kilo of cocaine did not originate from the Bladden landing, where did it come from? Police believe the cocaine is a parcel from the drug plane that mysteriously disappeared off the cost of Placentia several months ago.  As for Castillo, A.C.P. Grinage says he was a highly committed officer during his time of service, so this news comes as a surprise to him.

“I know that he and the individual we spoke about, who is the retired, who retired yesterday are friends. We can’t say what was the purpose of him dropping him off at the Training School was. But, because he did we did not want to leave no chances for speculation, hence the reason we went ahead and search the residence. But, there is no indication that he may have known. We have not ascertained that so far, within the investigation. The drugs that was found is the same from some of the type that we have recovered from the flight, the plane that fell in the sea in Placencia. That is the same brand. I can’t say, but right now there is several packages of drugs floating around, selling around. So, it is hard to say exactly where that was originated from. But, all indication is that it originated somewhere in the south. He has been a very good police officer during his service, and myself was surprised that he was caught with this drugs at this time.”
