In addition to the drugs, the Controlling of Narcotics Trafficking Brigade (BLTS), along with coast guard in the south, recovered a Yamaha Endurode engine, 105,750 gourdes (some 1,052 dollars), a solar panel, inverters, a generator, a fan and batteries.

Authorities also arrested three people, including a 35-year-old Jamaican citizen, who are being accused of association to commit a crime.

These kinds of operations in the country’s coasts and airports have increased in the past few months.

In November, the police arrested six Nigerian citizens in possession of 1.76 kilograms of cocaine. They were supposed to take a flight to Paris, France. A month earlier, the coast guard arrested three Jamaican citizens off the coast of Gonave, in the northwestern region of this capital, where 635.5 kilograms of marihuana were confiscated.

In May, the police confiscated a little more than 2,000 kilograms of marihuana camouflaged in white plastic bags, hidden in two vehicles that were traveling to this capital.
