US $2.5M marijuana bust in the Bahamas

Untitled-2MIAMI, CMC – The United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency says a joint task force from Operation Bahamas, Turks and Caicos (OPBAT) seized 2,842 pounds of marijuana worth an estimated wholesale value of over US$2.5 million during three separate law enforcement operations in The Bahamas last week.

CBP reports that over three separate nights, aircrews observed suspicious go-fast vessels transiting waters in the southeast Bahamas.

It said surface and air assets were subsequently dispatched to pursue and apprehend the suspected smugglers.

In addition to the narcotics seized, CBP said two smuggling vessels and a vehicle were taken into custody, and a total of six suspects were arrested.

The seized go-fast vessels and contraband were eventually escorted to Nassau, Bahamas, for further processing.
