Dominican authorities intercept ganja shipment destined for UK


The National Drug Control Directorate (DNCD) in the Dominican Republic successfully intercepted over 1,000 packets of marijuana. 

These were discovered hidden inside a shipping container at the Caucedo Multimodal Port in Boca Chica, Santo Domingo. The container was scheduled to be sent to the United Kingdom.

Operation details

Following a tip about potential contraband, DNCD agents, along with anti-narcotics military personnel and canine units, conducted a thorough inspection of several containers in transit. 

Their efforts focused on detecting any irregularities within the shipments. It was during this search that they identified anomalies in one container that had arrived from Kingston, Jamaica.

Upon opening the suspicious container, authorities found 49 cardboard boxes packed with a total of 1,061 packages of marijuana.
