With United Nations', Haitian police confiscate large
quantity of drug
By United Press International
PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti, Dec. 31 (UPI) -- A joint operation of the United Nations
and the Haitian National Police busted a major drug smuggling operation in the
U.N. peacekeepers based in Haiti, called MINUSTAH, and national police forces
raided three suspected sites, including an old unused nightclub operated by
international criminal groups running an illicit drug trafficking operation in
the country. The raid resulted in the confiscation of more than 110 pounds of
cannabis, the United Nations reported.
"This old nightclub served as a base for traffickers," Jean-Marie Bourry,
MINUSTAH director of police operations, said in a statement.
"This is the first time that MINUSTAH has carried out a special operation of
this magnitude, bringing together so many people. It was a combination of
helicopter, sea and land."
