In the continuous fight to eliminate illicit trade, two seizures were made by Customs and Excise in the Piarco area on January 28th, 2022.

A glock -19 with an extended magazine of 9mm ammunition, along with large amounts of marijuana were seized at around 4pm after a routine barrel investigation.

Later on that day, further investigations led to the seizure of marijuana in a male U.S. citizen’s luggage at Piarco, coming from Miami.

According to the Customs and Excise Division, “he was taken into custody and investigations are ongoing.”
