Haiti - Jamaica : Seizure of 300 kg of narcotic for Haiti
Sunday, the maritime police officers of Jamaica have seized 300 kilograms of marijuana that were found in plastic bags in the sea near Pelícano Cayo, at the eastern end of Jamaica (the goods had been spotted Saturday in the afternoon). In addition to the drugs, agents also found at sea 15 fuel cans.

According to the Jamaican authorities, 3 men were arrested including one Haitian suspected of involvement in this trafficking. Investigators from the Narcotics Division said the cargo should have been picked up by a boat as a destination Haiti, within the framework of exchange of weapons against drug between bands from both countries. This operation represents "another blow to drug trafficking against weapons between Jamaica and Haiti," declared the police of Jamaica.

Members of the Jamaican Coast Guard, took part in an operation to try to find the ship that should collect the drugs, but searches were unsuccessful.

Note that Jamaica is the largest producer of marijuana in the Caribbean.
