(Barbados Today) – Police in Barbados has launched a major investigation following the seizure of approximately $3 million worth of illegal drugs found aboard the yacht Ecstasy, which is owned by Goddard Enterprises Limited.
According to Barbados TODAY, they were told by official sources that the yacht returned to Barbados from Grenada over the weekend with its captain Chris Rogers, a non-executive director with Goddard’s Enterprises, and chairman of that company and head of the Barbados Private Sector Association, Charles Herbert, among those aboard the luxury vessel.
It is understood that both Herbert and Rogers have spent the last 24 hours between District A and Oistins police stations assisting members of the Drug Squad with their probe.
A media release from the Royal Barbados Police Force said;
“On Monday 23rd July 2018 about 1 p.m., members of the Royal Barbados Police Force’s Drug Squad unit conducted an operation on board a Barbados registered vessel at the Bridgetown Port, St Michael.
“As a result of that operation, a quantity of marijuana was found. Three crew members are currently assisting police with investigations,” the release said without naming the vessel, those on board or the value of the confiscated drugs.
It was not immediately known when the luxury vessel left Barbados, or if it made any stops other than in Grenada.
