Nearly 200 pounds of cocaine were recently seized by narcotics police at the Kingston Container Terminal (KCT).

The cocaine, which weighed 187 pounds is estimated to have a street value of over 101 million JMD.

On Monday afternoon, narcotics cops along with customs agents reportedly conducted  cargo examinations at the KCT.

During the examination of a 40 ft container,  five leather bags were discovered.  The bags reportedly had 78 parcels each containing white powdery substance resembling cocaine. 

Reports suggest that the container, which was also loaded with a shipment of rice destined for a local distributor, transited Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic from Guyana on its way to Jamaica.
