POLICE HAVE MADE yet another major drug bust off shore.

On Monday night, they netted cannabis with an estimated value of BDS $1.3 million.

According to the police, about 9:45 p.m., members of the Drug Squad, with assistance from the Barbados Coast Guard, intercepted a locally registered boat off the West Coast.

They seized 12 polythene bags and four packages of cannabis weighing just over 660 pounds.
