$2.5 Million in Cocaine Seized in Bahamas
Police seized the 345 pounds of cocaine on North West Cay, an island North of Great Inagua, around 4:30 am on Thursday.
The Drug Enforcement Unit and the United States Drug Enforcement Administration arrested two men, a 44-year-old Dominican Republic national and a 41-year-old Turks and Caicos resident shortly after the large find.
The suspects will be arraigned in court sometime this week.
The seizure comes just over a week after law enforcement agencies in Grand Bahama seized $1.2 million in cocaine from the Freeport Container Port.
According to police, the narcotics were discovered in a container that arrived from Peru and was being transported to Toronto, Canada.
