The third man believed to have been involved in the million dollar drug bust by the ONDCP on Tuesday is still on the run.
Officials from the Office of National Dug and Money Laundering Control Policy told ZDK News that up to press time, the whereabouts of the third suspect was still unknown and there are no leads as to his location.
The man is believed to have been involved in a major drug bust which occurred on Tuesday morning where drugs, carrying an estimated wholesale value of One Million, Seven Hundred And Seven Thousand, Seven Hundred and Fifty EC Dollars ($1,707,750.00 XCD) were seized.
According to an ONDCP release, the counter-drug operation resulted in the arrest of two Antiguan males and a seizure of 853lbs 14ozs of Compressed Cannabis.
It said that a white pickup refused to comply with officers’ instructions to stop which resulted in a chase. As a result, the man who was in the back of the truck sustained injuries after falling from the vehicle and is currently receiving medical attention.
It is believed that a vessel arrived from a nearby Caribbean island in the early hours of Tuesday morning with the illegal drugs onboard. The ONDCP says that investigations are ongoing
