This led to the seizure of over 700lbs of marijuana concealed within tins marked as canned food. It has an estimated street value of approximately US $850,000 or JMD 128,820,025.24.

The police believe that a taxi driver by the name of Anthony ‘Sprang’ Murray of Mike Town in Manchester can aid in the investigation and urges him to contact the Narcotics Division.
