Suspected drug discovered in abandoned vehicle
On Wednesday, May 20, 2015 about 9:45 p.m. officers attached to the Gros-Islet Police Station were notified of a parked Toyota omnibus, registration number TX 284 suspected of containing contraband/illicit substance on the compound of the Rodney Bay Marina situate in Gros-Islet.
Upon arrival, the officers noticed that the vehicle was unoccupied. Every effort to identify the owner or driver proved futile.
