Police in St. Vincent and the Grenadines have confirmed that they intercepted 219 pounds of “high-grade” cannabis shipped from Canada.

The drug was found in a 40-foot container at the Campden park Container Port last Friday.

In a statement on Thursday, police said that the drug was found during a joint operation conducted by police, port, and customs officials. 

“One forty-foot container shipped from Canada was searched. During the search several packages of Canadian high-grade cannabis were discovered and seized,” police said, adding that the investigation is ongoing.

It is the  second major bust of illegal items at one of the nation’s ports in less than a year.

In December 2022, police launched an investigation into the importation of six 9mm pistols, two high-power rifles and  200 rounds of 7.62 into the country.

The weapons and ammunition were intercepted at the Customs Department in Kingstown and represent the largest single haul of guns and ammunition intercepted by local authorities.

No one has been charged in connection with the weapons and ammunition.
