More than $10 million seized during anti-narcotics raid

The security forces seized a combined total of over 10 million JMD in cash from one of the target premises in St. Andrew, during the joint multi-agency anti-narcotics operation in St. Andrew and St. James today.


Police say the sums seized consisted of US $40,000, Canadian $29, 000 and Jamaican $537, 000.


Six high-end vehicles – two Mercedes Benz, one Toyota Tacoma truck, one Honda CRV, one Lexus motorcar, and one Infinity SUV- were also seized.


Five people alleged to be major players in the drug trafficking trade were taken into custody, during the pre-dawn anti-narcotics operations. Two of the persons arrested are to be extradited to the United States.


The revelation was made by the Major Organized Crime and Anti-corruption Agency (MOCA). MOCA says a location in West Gate Hills, St. James was one of the targeted areas.
