815 pounds of ganja seized in Ragged Island

Drug smugglers abandoned 815 pounds of marijuana after law enforcement detected their go-fast vessel in the Ragged Island Chain yesterday morning.

Officers from the Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) are looking for the three suspects, who evaded them by running into bushes.

A team from Operation Bahamas Turks and Caicos took up aerial surveillance of the area in a US Coast Guard helicopter.

The smugglers were long gone by the time the helicopter landed.

Law enforcement seized the smugglers’ cargo, with a wholesale street value of $815,000.

This is DEU’s first major seizure under the command of Chief Superintendent Roberto Goodman.
