On May 18, Trinidad and Tobago recorded its largest land drug bust in Chaguaramas, seizing over 168 kilogrammes of cocaine worth over $234 million in a multi-agency intelligence-led operation that included local as well as US law enforcement officers.
The police received information in March that a large shipment of cocaine was heading to the US. The police intercepted a black Suzuki SUV in the car park of a hotel in Chaguaramas, and found the cocaine. They also found a Glock pistol on the ground at the driver's feet.
The police arrested the three occupants.
One man, Keon Aberdeen of La Fillete Village, North Coast, Las Cuevas, was charged in connection with the bust.
